WHAT IMPACTS THE AUD/CAD EXCHANGE RATE
In the forex market, the AUD/CAD symbol represents the currency pair trading the Australian dollar against the Canadian dollar, an interesting pair consisting of two of the most popular commodity currencies. The AUD is a currency whose value fluctuates with changes in prices of gold, iron ore and coal - key commodities exported by Australia that have a major impact on its economy as well as currency. Whenever the prices of these commodities increase, it strengthens the Australian economy as well as the AUD, and increases the exchange rate of AUD/CAD.On the other hand, the CAD's value is driven by the price of crude oil - the most important export from Canada. Whenever the price of crude oil falls, the Canadian dollar weakens, causing the AUD/CAD forex pair to trade bullish, and vice versa.The AUD/CAD is a good forex pair to trade during a risk-on sentiment when it exhibits considerable volatility and activity. This is because investors prefer to move towards currencies like the AUD and CAD when their risk appetite is on the higher side. The AUD/CAD also benefits from a risk-off sentiment as it triggers more buying in the safe haven gold, one of Australia's key exports, which in turn supports the AUD even though it is a risk currency.
