For a more in-depth analysis on FX, check out the Q2 FX Forecast

USDCAD | The Canadian Dollar continues to remain supported against the greenback as USDCAD tests support at 1.3350. Focus for CAD traders will be on today’s employment report in which the headline is expected to show a marginal 8k rise following last months record rise. Alongside this, the NFP data will be release, which is likely to impact the pair, as such, 1-day implied volatility shows USDCAD ATM break-evens = 57pips (this means that options traders need to see at least 57pip of gains either side in order to profit).
