USD continues to trade in a broad upward trend against CAD.
The pair demonstrates a significant upward momentum, and then sharply decreases. In late October, the price went up, but this trend gave way to a sharp fall in early November. Yesterday, the pair fell by more than 100 points, today the momentum has remained.
The main catalyst for the decline is the weakening of the US currency due to the release of yesterday’s weak data on the US labor market. Today, special attention should be paid to statistics on Unemployment Rate and Nonfarm Payrolls in the US.
