    USD/CAD attention to oil, US data

    The pair is trading almost unchanged in the mid-1.2800s so far, amidst an offered tone in the greenback and an increasing selling pressure in crude oil prices, with the barrel of WTI breaking below the $41.00 key support.

    Ahead in the day, US Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization are due ahead of the Reuters/Michigan index. In Canada, Manufacturing Sales are also expected.

    USD/CAD significant levels

    As of writing the pair is losing 0.02% at 1.2847 and a breakdown of 1.2744 (2016 low Apr.13) would expose 1.2652 (low Jul.10 2015) and finally 1.2124 (monthly low Jun.24 2015).
