AUD/CAD

The base currency – AUD. The counter currency – CAD. The AUD/CAD rate represents the relationship between the Australian and Canadian dollars. This currency pair enables traders to take advantage of macroeconomic events in specific international markets of Canada and Australia without being directly exposed to the Forex majors. Note that the AUD/CAD chart is sensitive to broader commodity price trends, as the economies of both countries are strongly tied to natural resources exports.
 

Australian dollar vs Canadian dollar

Considered to be a relatively stable currency pair, AUD/CAD significantly depends on commodities’ price fluctuations. By virtue of the close relations and historical ties to China and its hard commodities, Australia has developed a long-term relationship between precious metals and the AUD currency. The Canadian dollar strongly depends of the crude oil price, due to the country’s position of principal commodity exporter.

Canadian dollar fortunes are deeply connected with the US – Canada’s closest and largest neighbour and trading partner. The Australian dollar is more related to the market environment on the emerging Asian markets.
