CAD Outlook for 16 October 2017

Neutral

After a small rebound in the second week of October, we are now neutral on the medium-term outlook for the Canadian dollar. As recent news from Canada has been limited, the currency has done well primarily thanks to relative weakness in the US dollar. Earlier, the loonie was weakening on lower interest rate hike expectations following comments from the Bank of Canada. While the loonie was in overbought conditions in September, the currency has since re-entered normal trading conditions. This is based on various technical indicators on a weekly chart of the Canadian dollar currency index.
