The COVID-19 pandemic is upending a lot of assumptions and giving forecasters fits as they try to assess what life is going to look like going forward. One area that is of interest to us as investors is the relative value of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar. High on the list of things that are hard to predict is the value of currencies. Forecasters, traders and economists spill oceans of ink and spend hours of time trying to guess (really, it is a guess) if the yen, the pound or the euro will go up or down, and how much. It is tempting just to ignore the whole question, but in order to do our job, we can’t.
