Just because I was curious I did a quick comparison of the Canadian dollar to some other currencies. Now I know that the USA is our largest trading partner by far. So I understand that the CAD to USD comparison (blue) is the most important but just for interest sake I tried comparing us to some other currencies as well. Namely Australian Dollars (red), Euros (green), and British Pounds (yellow).

And... well... they're all (except the pound) going up compared to the US Dollar, which only means that the US dollar is generally weakening. I did notice that compared to the USD our dollar is going up more, which would leave me to believe that in general our dollar is strengthening on world markets. Of course, I'm using the 5-day graph so... 5 days from now, who knows what this will look like :)
