USD/CAD sticking to highs above 1.3600 heading into 2019
- Oil markets have hampered the CAD.
- New Year's trading promises a rush of fresh liquidity in the latter half of the week.
USD/CAD is trading steadily near 1.3630 as traders buckle down for rollover into 2019 and Tuesday's market holiday, with broader market volumes grinding to a halt as investors set up for the second off-day this holiday season.
Crude oil continues to see play towards the downside, leaving the Canadian Loonie exposed to further downside, with the commodity-linked CAD giving up steady ground to the Greenback with the USD/CAD pairing climbing for three straight months.
The pair remains latched onto near-term highs, threatening to plug into the major 1.3700 handle and 2017's peak heading into the new year.
