      U.S. Dollar Continues To Gain Ground Against Canadian Dollar

      USD/CAD is currently trying to settle above the resistance at 1.2720 while the U.S. dollar is gaining ground against a broad basket of currencies.

      The U.S. Dollar Index managed to get above the resistance at 89.75 and is trying to get to the test of the next resistance level at 90. If this attempt is successful, USD/CAD will receive additional support.

      Today, the U.S. reported that Initial Jobless Claims declined from 790,000 (revised from 787,000) to 787,000 while Continuing Jobless Claims decreased from 5.2 million (revised from 5.22 million) to 5.07 million. The reports were a bit better than analysts expected but it is clear that the job market needs additional support.

      Interestingly, the U.S. dollar is showing strength on the foreign exchange market despite stimulus expectations which have pushed the S&P 500 to new highs. However, its too early to talk about any serious rebound as the U.S. Dollar Index remains close to its recent lows and the resistance at the 90 level remains strong.

      Meanwhile, the oil rally continues, and higher oil prices may ultimately provide additional support to commodity-related currencies including the Canadian dollar.
