    The US dollar rose modestly across the board after the release of the Federal Reserve minutes from the latest meeting. USD/CAD climbed from 1.3100 to 1.3127, moving away from the lows.

    Earlier during the American session, the pair bottomed at 1.3062 amid a rally in crude oil prices. Afterwards rebounded toward 1.3100 and recently attempted to rise further.

    So far the US dollar has been unable to rise on top of the 20-hour moving average that stands at 1.3140 and also it holds below yesterday’s closing price. USD/CAD is about to post the first decline after rising during the previous three trading days.
