    Crude oil prices are volatile today. The WTI barrel jumped toward $40.00 after the EIA report but recently bounce to the downside, falling under $39.00. The latest move removed strength from the Canadian dollar.

    USD/CAD approaching October lows

    The pair is testing March lows and a consolidation below would expose October lows that lie at 1.2830. According to some analysts, a decline toward the mentioned area could trigger a sharp rebound to the uspide.

    If USD/CAD falls below 1.2830 it would be trading at the lowest since July 2015; with the next medium-term resistance seen around 1.2650.
