The OPEC meeting on November 30 is a high event risk as OPEC leaders gather in Vienna to discuss and reach an agreement to freeze production levels in a bid to stabilize oil prices. OPEC leaders had in late September this year agreed to limit OPEC oil production around 32 million - 33.5 million barrels per day. However, the agreement is yet to be formalized, which could happen this week, on November 30th.

We would be purchasing daily puts on USD/CAD at 1.3500 as we expect USD/CAD to retest this broken support level to establish resistance. If resistance is formed here, USD/CAD could be seen pushing lower to the next support level at 1.3450. USD/CAD remains volatile on the OPEC meeting as Canada is a net exporter of oil prices. The current weakness in the US dollar could also add some downside certainty to the currency pair.
