Canadian Dollar extends losses as external factors weigh on the currency.

As such, with little on the economic calendar for Canada, external factors are likely to dictate the currency. Resistance situated at 1.3345, in which a break above opens the door for a test of 1.3380, while support resides at 1.3290-1.3300.
