USD/CAD manages a bounce back towards 1.3250

  • The Loonie remains tied tightly to oil barrels' performance, in lock-step with WTI charts.
  • Despite the pair's early bounce, bearish continuation is almost assured.

USD/CAD is seeing a thin bounce from Wednesday's lows as the CAD continues to track closely with oil prices, and the recovery in WTI prices is seeing the Dollar-Loonie pairing stoop lower as the CAD rides oil prices higher.

The US Dollar dipped to a low of 1.3180 on Wednesday against the Loonie, and the pair's early Thursday bounce sees the pair challenging 1.3240, but with the CAD remaining tied tightly to oil prices, the Loonie's weakening stance will only last as long as the WTI's soft decline in early Thursday trading.
