Yesterday, USDCAD climbed from 1.3276 up to 1.3350 retracing a portion of Wednesday's plunge from 1.3480 down to 1.3280. Overnight, USDCAD eased lower towards the 1.3310 level as oil prices gained to $49 and the USD eased across the board. The pairing tested the 1.3304 level this morning on the back of better than expected Canadian manufacturing sales. The move lower was short-lived as USDCAD has since climbed testing yesterday's 1.3350 high.
