Reluctance turning to belief for CAD bulls

What’s Next for the Canadian dollar
1) Why CAD is the best-performer this year
The Canadian dollar is the top performing currency in the world this year and it’s not hard to see why. We’re at the start of a new economic cycle, commodities are booming and the US has spent heavily on stimulus.
When we last spoke a month ago, I highlighted 83-cents as a target and here we are. That’s 1.20 in USD/CAD. IT’s a huge inflection level and a big psychological level.
2) Disbelief is the pre-requisite for a lasting move
If you look at targets from economists and banks, they’ve been slow to move. Most still show the Canadian dollar giving some back but you can see the shift in the market. The latest futures positioning data shows a big tilt towards CAD bets.
For the long-term, corporates need to get

The Crouching Tiger Trade

There are five things to look for when there’s nothing to see.
There’s an inclination to scan markets and look for volatility. Oftentimes, it’s better to look for an edge in a market that isn’t moving.
The crouching tiger will soon roar. The hidden dragon will breathe fire.

Can central banks keep plugging leaks in the dam?

Adam Button from ForexLive talks about the coronavirus crisis in markets and how it’s affected the Canadian dollar.
"What’s happened is a US dollar funding crunch. The world runs on US dollars and there have been no other safe havens so everyone has been piling into the dollar. The relative stability of the loonie – as tough as that is to believe – is a good sign for the Canadian financial system. We’re not seeing the level of panic moves from the BOC as some other central banks are making. That gives me a sliver of confidence but my fear is that the market will crumble again when the first few waves of large-scale US testing begin.
For now, everyone is doing the only thing that works and that’s buying US dollars. Some fresh swap lines today have inspired a small reversal but nothing

The market is search for a new theme. Here is where to watch

The themes of 2019 were 1) the US-China trade war 2) Brexit 3) Central bank easing. With the signing of the phase one deal and with central banks easing close to the finish line (the BOE, RBA and some EM central banks are still in play), the market suddenly finds itself without a theme.

Two charts to watch for the pulse on global growth

The global economy slowed in mid-2019 on the combination of higher interest rates and the trade war. Since then the Fed and others have lowered rates and now we have a ceasefire in the trade war.
Some things like real estate have quickly turned around and stock markets are clearly pricing in more of the same, yet manufacturing is still soft. A few manufacturing surveys were out today and the theme was a continue flatline.
A good spot to watch is the JPMorgan global PMI because it aggregates them. It started 2018 at 54 then slowly sank to 49.3 into mid-2019. The latest number was out today at 50.1, which is barely expanding and lower than the previous month.
The other spot to watch is AUD/USD. At the end of December it broke above the 200-day moving average for the first time in 23
