Yesterday, USDCAD broke below recent support at 1.3250 trading down towards a 2 week low at 1.3224.

U.S. 10 year yields dropped towards new 3 year lows near 1.44%. USDCAD climbed all the way back to 1.3300 before settling near 1.3280. Despite a surge in oil prices, (API data out yesterday afternoon indicated an 11 million barrel draw) USDCAD pushed higher overnight towards 1.3318. EIA data this morning confirmed a significant 10 million barrel draw from inventories with oil prices now up nearly 7% on the week. USDCAD dropped back to 1.3287 but has moved back up towards 1.3300. The GBP is the worst performing currency on the day as UK PM Johnson looks to prorogue UK Parliament until Oct. 14th.
