The pair USD/CAD continues the fall that started in the beginning of the month. Currently the quotes have reached their 4-weeks minimum around 1.3470.
The Canadian currency is supported by considerable growth of oil quotes illustrating the hopes of the investors for the long-term extension of the OPEC+ agreement that may take place this week during the meeting of cartel states in Vienna.
Even negative April data on the Canadian CPI in April failed to stop the fall of the pair. The YoY value remained on the level of 1.6%. In January exceeded 2.0% and since then has been decreasing. This leaves almost no hope that the Bank of Canada will change the interest rate. The next meeting of the Bank is due on Wednesday, and no serious decision are expected to be made during it.
