USDCAD Still Pointing Higher Post-US Election (Despite Oil Rebound)


USDCAD managed to push higher to another new cycle high this week after the US election result. This move is all the more impressive given that there was a rebound in the oil price (see the Brent Crude Future chart below). Usually, the correlation would be for a higher oil price to benefit the Canadian Dollar, which would see USDCAD push lower. The resilient tone displayed by USDCAD (despite the oil price rebound) highlights an underlying bullish theme for USDCAD into November.
