    USD/CAD picking up pace after OPEC’s meeting

    The Canadian dollar intensifies its offered tone after the OPEC has decided not to cut its output at today’s meeting in Vienna. Further news from the meeting tells the cartel increased its quota to 31.5 million bpd from 30 million bpd.

    Spot manages to keep the trade in the upper end of the range near 1.3400 the figure, boosted at the same time by the poor results from the Canadian docket today and a solid print from US Non-farm Payrolls (211K).
