    Not O&G but pretty much unemployed as of this week, weakening USD and no vehicle market correction means nothing is buyable for us to export.

    Sorry to hear, but this is way better for Consumers. More supply = lowered prices. Every vehicle that gets exported helps to reduce supply and increase the prices of vehicles in Alberta.

    Sorry to hear, but any secondary plans if USDCAD stays weak for the foreseeable future?
    I think it is a good time to pivot if you can.

    I’ve only ever worked in the auto industry so I guess search around in the industry. Money hasn’t been great but I might look at taking part time school on top of full time work in the next few years too.

    The FX guys I deal with (we buy a fair amount of USD) claim they don't expect the strong CAD to last for long. Hopefully they are right for your sake.

    So hoard USD at this level?

    I have purchased over $1M in the last bit (for work, I don't have that lying around...). Will be interesting to see if it was really worth it. But even at this level every 1 cent change is only $10K which doesn't really make that much of a difference.
