The Canadian dollar is higher this morning, outperforming the majority of G10 peers. A renewed focus on central bank policy has weighed on EUR, which is the main underperformer early in today’s session. Following a renewed correlation to oil prices, CAD risk today is centered around EIA oil inventories, and their implications on broader oil prices. There are no data releases scheduled today in Canada or the United States, leaving CAD to take direction from oil prices.
Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.3100 – 1.3200
