AUD/CAD is a traditional risk pair barometer to overall currency markets. The big drop from 1.0300’s to current 0.9800’s is a testament to a risk off market environment since Trump’s election. Yet a 500 pip drop in AUD/CAD so far and so fast is a rare day as AUD/CAD as a risk barometer is a traditional range currency pair and rarely moves 500 pips in any period.  Any AUD/USD recovery will see AUD/CAD travel higher.
