USD/CAD ticking towards 1.3650

  • The Loonie continues to suffer at the hands of slumping barrel prices.
  • The US remains the principal over-producer of crude oil, flooding the market and giving the USD/CAD pair a free hand.

USD/CAD is cycling near 1.3630 as the Canadian Loonie, hampered by lagging oil prices, plays towards the downside, giving up steady ground to the Greenback heading into the weekend.

Despite frequent bouts of weakness for the USD as broader markets swing into and out of the risk appetite camp at a frenetic pace, USD/CAD remains a steadily-trending pair as slumping prices buries the CAD, and the Dollar-Loonie pairing is set for a continued run up the charts as long as the US remains the world's largest over-producer of crude oil, pushing the oil-dependent Loonie out of the fx market.

Next week's economic calendar is devoid of any meaningful CAD-based data, leaving the major pair to continue trading in tandem with flagging oil prices.
