    FXStreet (Edinburgh) - After a brief adventure beyond the 1.3000 handle, USD/CAD has now returned to session lows in the 1.2985/80 band.

    USD/CAD weaker ahead of US data

    Spot continues to meander in a narrow range today, with the generalized softer tone in the greenback and the recovery in crude oil prices as the main drivers behind the recent increase in the buying interest around CAD.

    Next on tap will be the US Retail Sales followed by Producer Prices and the Fed’s Beige Book. Market consensus expects headline sales to have expanded at a monthly pace of 0.2% during September, while core sales are seen contracting 0.1% MoM.

    USD/CAD levels to consider

    As of writing, the pair is down 0.40% at 1.2986 and a breakdown of 1.2917 (100-day sma) would aim for 1.2900 (low Oct.9) and then 1.2869 (Fibo 38.2% of 1.1916-1.3458). On the other hand, the initial up barrier aligns at 1.3095 (Fibo 23.6% of 1.1916-1.3458) followed by 1.3181 (55-day sma) and finally 1.3458 (11-year high Sep.29).
