The USD/CAD pair reversed early lost ground to fresh multi-week lows and was now seen trying to build on the recovery move. How has easing trade war fear impacted the USD? Learn this and more from the 5 April USDCAD Technical Analysis.
5 April, GKFX – Easing trade war fears helped the US Dollar to regain some positive traction and was seen as one of the key factors behind the pair’s modest uptick from the lowest level since Feb. 27.
Bullish oil prices now seemed to cap gains
The rebound, however, seemed lacking conviction/strong follow-through amid the prevailing bullish sentiment around oil markets. In fact, WTI crude oil built on strong overnight gains led by upbeat weekly US oil inventories report and underpinned demand for the commodity-linked currency – Loonie, eventually capping the pair’s modest recovery attempt.
Next on tap would be the release of Canadian trade balance data and the usual weekly initial jobless claims data from the US, which should assist traders to grab some short-term opportunities later during the early NA session.
