Key Quotes

“USDCAD is trading above our fundamental fair value estimate (1.2342) this morning but weak data is liable to give funds a boost; note US/Canada 5-year spreads continue to move favorably for the USD, with the spread widening out to +58bps this week, the widest since early April”.

“At the very least, we see limited downside for USDCAD at the moment; we remain long—looking for 1.28—and would favour opening/adding to USD longs on minor dips to the mid 1.24s”.

“Loss of support at 1.2435/40 intraday would signal scope for modest weakness to the high 1.23s where we think stronger technical support should emerge”.
