The Oil markets brought some good news for the Canadian Dollar this week, strengthening the Loonie against a basket of major currencies.
The Price of Crude Oil rose sharply by 3% following the news that the recent cut in production will be extended to March next year. At a meeting in Beijing, the Saudi Energy Minister, Khalid al-Falih and his Russian counterpart, Alexander Novak stated “The two ministers agreed to do whatever it takes to achieve the desired goal of stabilising the market and reducing commercial oil inventories to their five-year average level.” This is great news for the Oil dependant Canada and the CAD quickly rose against its counterparts.
