Canadian Dollar

Owing to the image of a loon on the one-dollar coin, the Canadian dollar (CAD) is sometimes referred to as the “loonie”. Closely tied to the US economy, the CAD accounts for approximately 2% of all global reserves, superseded only by the U.S dollar (USD), the euro (EUR), the yen (JPY), and the Great Britain pound (GBP). With its extreme sensitivity to movements in crude oil and other products, traders often use the CAD to speculate on trends related to these commodities.

Bulgarian lev

Bulgaria joined the EU in 2007, but its currency, the lev, has been pegged to the euro (EUR) since 1997. Bulgaria has wanted to adopt the euro currency since its inception into the EU, and was expected to join the eurozone in 2015, but has been continuously blocked from replacing its currency until it can implement economic reforms. Bulgaria is currently the poorest EU member state, with a GDP at 49% of the EU average.

How does the CAD dollar trade against the Bulgarian lev historically?

Throughout history, there have been many different exchange rate regimes in place in Bulgaria. The first edition of the lev was introduced in 1881, and had an equal value to the French franc. During the 1940s, the lev was pegged to the German reichsmark, followed by the Russian ruble during the Soviet Union’s occupation of Bulgaria in 1944. From 1945 to 1952, the Bulgarian lev was pegged to the US dollar a number of times. When the current edition of the lev was introduced in 1995, it was pegged to the euro. It’s assumed that this will remain the case until Bulgaria eventually adopts the euro as its currency. Currently, the Bulgarian lev is trading around 1.27 to the CAD dollar (as of 30 Jan. 2018). The Bulgarian lev (BGN) today is pegged to the euro at a rate of 1.95583 BGN to 1 euro.

How can I predict future exchange rates between the Canadian dollar and Bulgarian lev?

The current peg to the euro of 1.95583 lev to 1 euro will likely remain in place until Bulgaria finally adopts the euro, a process currently in the works.

Anyone looking to make large transactions or deposits in Bulgarian lev should be sure to stay updated on Bulgaria’s progress in joining the eurozone to predict future exchange rates.
