    The greenback is now gathering further steam vs. its Canadian neighbour, sending USD/CAD to test session highs near 1.3360.

    USD/CAD focus on oil, BoC

    CAD is losing upside momentum today, as the rally in crude oil prices seems to be taking a breather on Tuesday. In fact, the barrel of the West Texas Intermediate has eased some ground after testing fresh highs around the $38.00 mark during overnight trading.

    Ahead in the session, Canadian Housing Starts and Building Permits are due, while the BoC interest rate decision is due tomorrow. In the US calendar, the NFIB index has missed expectations during February at 92.9, while the API’s weekly report on crude stockpiles is due later in the NA session.

    USD/CAD significant levels

    As of writing the pair is advancing 0.50% at 1.3341 facing the next resistance at 1.3596 (20-day sma) followed by 1.3678 (100-day sma) and then 1.3861 (high Feb.24). On the flip side, a breakdown of 1.3262 (low Mar.7) would open the door to 1.3034 (monthly low Nov.3 2015) and finally 1.2827 (monthly low Oct.15 2015).
