Technical Outlook- Intraday

The USD/CAD soared more than 150 points in two days as the dollar continued to strengthen against its peers especially after the hawkish FOMC. For the moment, the USD/CAD is holding below $1.3062, the major resistance area.

Due to the fact the that Canadian economy’s most of the revenue comes from the crude oil export, nearly 70% from the United States, the Loonie shares a strong negative correlation with WTI crude oil. The crude oil prices have dropped below $70/barrel, which is also keeping the Canadian dollar weaker against the Buck.
