Canadian Dollar Forecast – CAD Stays Weak as Stimulus Anticipation Builds

The Bank of Canada moving back into a dovish posture has been expected for a while now. As we came into 2016, the Canadian Dollar was mired in a continued descent; and when paired-up with what was an extremely strong U.S. Dollar on the back of hopes/thoughts/fears of a full four interest rate hikes from the Federal Reserve in 2016, this created a real quagmire of a situation for Canadian importers.

Chinese Yuan Forecast – Yuan May Retrace in Near Term on Domestic Pressures

Both the onshore and offshore Yuan extended losses against the U.S. Dollar for the second consecutive week amid the Dollar strength: theUSD/CNHset record highs (record lows for the offshore Yuan) on a daily basis over the past five days

Gold Forecast –Gold Prices into Support as Trum Rally Ignites the Dollar
