With third-quarter earnings beating expectations and major retailers getting a boost from the Black Friday sales push, the major North American equity indices posted weekly gains for the first time in three weeks. Ebullient retail sales numbers buoyed markets as online U.S. retail giant Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) and bricks-and-mortar retailer Macy’s Inc. (NYSE: M) led the markets higher, advancing 5.3% and 3.5%, respectively, on the week. An uptick in the U.S. rate of inflation in October raised market expectations of a Federal Reserve Board rate hike in December, supported by a flattening yield curve, with the spread between the 2-year U.S. Treasury note and the 30-year bond narrowing to 0.60 of a percentage point, its tightest spread in a decade. The S&P 500 Composite Index advanced 0.9% on the week, while the Nasdaq Composite Index gained 1.6%. Toronto’s benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index gained 0.7% on the week, as energy stocks rose on a 4.3% weekly advance in the price of crude oil.

After a sharp 10% appreciation versus the greenback from May through September, the Canadian dollar is now sitting pretty close to its long-term fair value, as measured by purchasing power parity. Many investors are therefore wondering: Can the Canadian dollar break above its recent highs, or was this just another flash in the pan? In our view, most of the good news for the loonie is in the rear-view mirror. Here are six key reasons why the loonie could face further resistance ahead.
