Loonie Struggles as Commodity Prices Tumble

The Canadian dollar fell to US$1.0332 early this morning in Toronto as commodity prices continue to decline. Precious metals in particular have fallen during the week on rumors that investor George Soros’ funds have reduced their precious metals holdings. In addition, margin requirements to trade silver have increased and some investors have been forced to sell assets to meet margin calls triggered by the margin changes.
