US Dollar vs CAD (FX:USDCAD)
From Nov 2019 to May 2020
The Canadian dollar declined against its major counterparts in the Asian session on Monday, as oil prices fell after Kuwait signaled a deal with Saudi Arabia to renew crude output along their border.
Crude for February delivery fell $0.46 to $60.17 per barrel.
The resumption of output is likely to add around 500,000 barrels per day to the oil market.
The deal is expected to be signed on Tuesday.
Kuwait's Oil Minister Khaled Al-Fadhel said that resuming output at the Wafra and Khafji oilfields in the neutral zone depends on a political decision and a final accord.
Asian markets are mixed amid renewed optimism about an interim U.S.-Chinese trade deal.
