    The selling interest around CAD is gathering further steam in response to a drop of more than 2% in the barrel of West Texas Intermediate, which is currently hovering over the $40.50 area.

    In addition, Canadian Manufacturing Sales have contracted more than expected during February, down 3.3% and reverting January’s 2.3% advance. Back to the US, both Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization have missed consensus, adding to the USD-selling.

    USD/CAD significant levels

    As of writing the pair is advancing 0.27% at 1.2879 with the next hurdle at 1.3036 (20-day sma) followed by 1.3208 (23.6% Fibo of 1.4692-1.2750) and then 1.3219 (high Apr.5).
