USD/CAD Clinches Highs Near 1.2740
The US dollar is posting moderate gains vs. its major rivals during the European morning, now sending USD/CAD to daily highs near 1.2740.
USD/CAD focus on oil, data
Spot is advancing for the second straight session at the end of the week in spite of the better tone surrounding crude oil prices, with the barrel of WTI up over 1% and approaching the $44.00 mark, this usually being CAD supportive.
However, the ongoing strong recovery of the greenback seems to be offsetting any CAD bullish attempt, all ahead US advanced manufacturing PMI gauged by Markit and the more relevant Canadian inflation figures and retail sales.
