COZfx: Canadian dollar hits fresh 4-week highs

COZforex: The Canadian dollar rose to fresh 4 week highs against its broadly weaker US counterpart on Tuesday, boosted by higher prices for oil and robust domestic data.

USD/CAD was down 0.3% to 1.3462 by 09.30 ET, its lowest trough since April 24.

The price of oil, a major Canadian export pushed higher amid hopes that major producers will extend supply cuts for a prolonged period later this week, amid efforts to reduce a global supply glut.

The loonie received an additional boost after data showing that the value of Canadian wholesale trade grew by 0.9% in March, hitting a record high.

The increase was mainly due to increased demand for building materials and supplies, Statistics Canada said.
The greenback was struggling near six-month lows against a currency basket as expectations for fiscal stimulus under the Trump administration faded amid political turmoil in Washington.

Recent weeks have seen a steady stream of revelations surrounding the FBI’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in November’s presidential election and reports that President Donald Trump attempted to interfere with the judicial process.

The US dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, was last at 96.83, not far from Monday’s six-month trough of 96.83.

COZfx: Trade dispute posed “material risk” to the economy: RBA meeting minutes

COZforex: For the past trading session, the AUD rose 0.07% against the USD and closed at 0.7154.

In commodities, LME Copper prices declined 1.5% or $86.5/MT to $5860.0/MT; Meanwhile, Aluminum prices declined 1.5% or $30.5/MT to $1985.0/MT.

The minutes of the Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) September monetary policy meeting showed that the policymakers sounded optimistic on strong labour market and resilient domestic consumption. However, the officials expressed concerns over the impact of escalating US-China trade tensions and cautioned that it could pose a “material risk” to the economy. Further, the members maintained their cautiously optimistic forecasts and stated that the next interest rate move was likely to be up.

On the data front, Australia’s house price index eased 0.6% on an annual basis in 2Q 2018, less than market expectations for a decline of 0.7% and compared to an advance of 2.0% in the previous quarter.

In technical analysis, COZforex senior currency strategist Ian • Quigley said: AUD/USD is expected to find support at 0.7159 and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 0.7125; Meanwhile, the pair is expected to find its first resistance at 0.7211, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 0.7229.

Trading trend in the Aussie is expected to be determined by Australia’s Westpac leading index for August, set to release overnight.
