Earlier, the U.S. Dollar Index declined below the 92 level and tried to gain additional downside momentum but received strong support at 91.85 and rebounded back above 92. Despite this rebound, the U.S. Dollar Index is close to yearly lows at 91.75. If the U.S. Dollar Index settles below this level, USD/CAD will find itself under additional pressure.
There are no important economic reports to digest due to the Thanksgiving holiday so foreign exchange market traders will focus on general market sentiment towards the American currency.
At this point, the market believes that another round of U.S. economic stimulus is inevitable. Yesterday, the U.S. reported that Initial Jobless Claims increased to 778,000. This report indicated that the second wave of the virus started to put material pressure on the U.S. job market, and additional stimulus is likely the only way to provide immediate support to both employers and employees.
If traders continue to focus on the potential big stimulus package and rock-bottom interest rates, USD/CAD may continue its downside move.
