Currency news and forecasts for Canadian Dollar and United States Dollar

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency must always be quoted in comparison to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the CAD vs USD, you should pay attention to both Canadian Dollar and United States Dollar news and forecasts.

Canadian Dollar (CAD) - Market news and forecasts

A fantastic January that took the Canadian dollar away from long-term lows against the US dollar was followed by a steady February and then a weak first-half of March.

In the first week of March, traders reacted badly to news of Canada’s economy growing at a dismal quarterly rate of just 0.1 percent (the slowest rate of quarterly growth in 2 ½ years), and they sold the loonie to account for a lower probability of future interest rate hikes by Canada’s central bank.

Against the US dollar, the loonie recovered slightly in the second week of March and stabilised at levels near C$1.333 per USD, although another notable exchange rate at the time of writing, GBP/CAD, rose to an 8-month high (CAD low) of C$1.78.

Per researchers at CIBC and TD Securities, fair value in USD/CAD is currently C$1.4, indicating potential CAD depreciation worth 5 percent. A move to C$1.4 would take the loonie to its lowest level against its US cousin since early 2016.

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

In the third week of April the Dollar Index was rallying strongly towards the mid-97s, slightly below major resistance at 97.70, a break of which would be massively positive for the greenback. The index was up 1.7 percent year-to-date.

The dollar’s strength comes in spite of a dovish surprise in March from the Federal Reserve, which ditched two interest rate hikes from its 2019 projections. Fortunately for dollar holders, the rest of the world has problems and other important central banks also turned dovish, removing much of the incentive for selling USD.

Bloomberg research warned in April of potential for a large upcoming move in the US dollar, up or down. Over the past quarter-century, three prominent troughs in the JPMorgan Global FX Volatility Index were followed by dollar moves over 6-month periods worth 10-15 percent. The index was trading in mid-April at a 5-year low.
