Unless oil rebounds more than expected, along with a couple other factors, the 77 cents seems more likely. Having said that, I've been trading currency for years on Forex, and I have yet to figure out what the heck it's doing.

Going up!

We're of the opinion that you pay when it makes sense for your finances, rather than watching the rate like a hawk. Not even the best traders can predict exactly where it's going, and we are certainly not professionals.

Once again, the "expert" financial prognosticators are incorrect. Wish I had sent in a bigger amount immediately when we got our date.

Was a fun interview on the radio with the expert from one large bank trying to explain what happened to his prediction of a 58 cent Canadian dollar.

One just never knows. The top 6 Canadian banks forecast the rate for Q1 of 2017 from 1.30-1.37, or 0.73-0.77 reversed. They could all be way off.
