Given the current chart for the Canadian Dollar, migrating snowbirds might want to exchange some loonies for some sawbucks very soon. The Canadian Dollar continues to hit resistance above the $1.02 level. It had a rough week chart-wise, forming a big red bar on the Elder Impulse System chart.
On the other hand, the US Dollar is strengthening, breaking to the upside compared to the Yen ($XJY), the British Pound ($XBP), the Euro ($XEU), and the Loonie ($CDW).
Commodities have a rough time whenever $USD is strong which is one reason that Gold behaved poorly on Friday. Even so, mining stocks held up well. We'll see if that remains true next week.
