USD/CAD

The USD/CAD currency pair is composed of the United States dollar as the base currency and the Canadian dollar as the counter currency. The USD/CAD chart represents the relationship between the American and Canadian dollars, essentially how many Canadian dollars can be traded for one American dollar. The latter has given the USD/CAD currency pair a nickname ‘loonie’, because of the loon bird, featured on Canada’s one-dollar coin. The USD/CAD boasts a remarkable trading volume as one of the world’s commodity currency pairs.
 

A brief history of the US dollar

One of the world’s most influential currencies, the US dollar dates its history back to Joachimstal, now modern-day Germany. In the town, silver ‘thalers’ were minted, each with a standardised weight – 29.2 g. These coins were widely used across the European continent and eventually found its way to the New World – America.
 
Following the American Revolution, in 1972 the newly formed US Congress instated the ‘thaler’ as the official currency, although at a slightly lighter weight – 27.0 g. This was done as a method of standardisation, following the corrupt ‘continental bill’ system.
 
Although still closely tied to the price of silver and gold, the US dollar has developed as a currency spawning a multitude of coins and notes. Today, the currency is controlled by the Federal Reserve, the central bank of the United States, established in 1913.
 
The USD is the world’s foremost reserve currency, held by numerous countries as part of their foreign exchange reserves. It also makes up six out of eight of the world’s Forex pairs. The US dollar is denoted by the symbol $.
 

The story behind CAD

The Canadian dollar is the official currency of Canada and unofficial currency to Saint Pierre and Miquelon. Issued by the Bank of Canada, it is the world’s 7th most traded currency. Also known by the nickname ‘loonie’, the currency uses the symbol $, Can$ or C$.
 
Moving from the use of beaver pelts as a form of currency in the 1600s, Canada’s currency has gone through a number of changes. By the 18th century a variety of coins were in circulation on the territory, all without a standardisation process.
 
Like the USD, Canada has a history of using the Spanish dollar or ‘thaler’ as far back as the early 1800s. Various coinages were used provincially, such as the British Columbian dollar, the Nova Scotian dollar etc. In 1867, several states merged their currencies, creating the Dominion of Canada and the Canadian dollar.
 
 

What factors affect the USD/CAD pair?

The USD/CAD shows a negative correlation to various US dollar containing currencies, such as the GBP/USD, AUD/USD and NZD/USD, due to the dollar’s role as a counter currency, rather than a base currency.
 
The USD/CAD rate is also affected by key financial players, such as the Federal Reserve (US) and the Bank of Canada. Releases and announcements from these institutions – monetary policy, interest rate changes and other key news items – influence the currency pair’s volatility.
 
Canada’s economy is heavily correlated to oil prices, due to its status as the largest oil-producer to the US market and a major player as one of the world’s top oil exporters.
