Oil prices cannot really rally.  When a recovery worth over 20% was seen, the words “bull market” came into play, but the bulls are stopped at the gates.

As the prices of crude oil slide, so does the Canadian  dollar, which meets the crude reality of its No. 1 export.  USD/CAD is trading over 1.25 once again.

WTI crude oil is down below $50 once again, so is Brent and so is the Canadian dollar.
