C$ gains 1/2 cent in range-bound trading TORONTO: The Canadian dollar finished about half a cent stronger against the greenback on Wednesday, recouping its losses from the previous session, but a dearth of market-driving news kept the currency range bound.The currency surged to levels not seen since January last week, following better-than-forecast economic data and an optimistic tone from the Bank of Canada, and has been trading between C$1.2328 and C$1.2088 this week."I think right now the interest rate differentials is really driving USD/CAD. Because there's no movement there, we're not really getting any movement in the (currency) rate either," said Amo Sahota, director at Klarity FX in San Francisco.The Canada-US two-year bond spread was 12.1 basis points, while the 10-year spread was -48.4. The two-year spread has remained relatively steady since last week's events."It's going to take some type of event to get us moving again. It's a pre-Fed week as well ... so that's keeping ...

C$ dips on firmer US$, softer oil, but still outperformer TORONTO: The Canadian dollar slipped modestly against a broadly stronger US dollar on Monday and softer crude prices, but was stronger against all other major currencies after last week's rally.The loonie on Friday touched its strongest level since January following better-than-forecast domestic data and a more hawkish tone from the Bank of Canada.The stronger greenback, which makes dollar-traded commodities like oil less attractive for holders of other currencies, dented the price of crude, while news ...
C$ at strongest level since January on domestic data TORONTO: The Canadian dollar hit its strongest level against its US counterpart since January on Friday, after a surprise jump in domestic inflation and strong retail sales data.The rate of inflation rose 1.2 percent in March, lifted by higher food prices as a decline in gasoline prices moderated, data from Statistics Canada showed.Meanwhile, retail sales snapped a two-month slide.The data pair adds to a feeling in the market that the Bank of Canada can hold ...
Dollar rallies from 3-week low vs yen as US inflation rises NEW YORK: The dollar rebounded from a three-week low against the yen and a 10-day trough against a currency basket on Friday, bolstered by data showing inflation starting to creep into the US economy, a development that should keep the Federal Reserve on track to lift interest rates this year.The inflation data, however, did not change the market's expectation for the timing of a Fed rate hike, especially after recent soft US economic figures.Analysts are ...
