USD/CAD holding the range, eyes for 1.0800 2015

FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/CAD is trading at 1.0947, up 0.06% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.0982 and low at 1.0925.

USD/CAD is back into the middle of the range after a turbulent time over the releases of Canadian data today. Overall, we are generally in line with expectations but there were a number of misses across the board and as a result the pair looks to be closing the week in the middle of the 1.09 handle gaining half a big figure. Analysts at Rabobank explained that they look for the first BoC rate hike of the cycle at Q3 2015, a little ahead of the Fed. “We expect USD/CAD to hold current ranges near-term but see risk of a push below 1.08 at the start of 2015”.
