Forex: USD/CAD hovering over 1.0200

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The USD rally has resumed its march, briefly interrupted on Monday, lifting the cross above the key mark at 1.0200 on Wednesday.

Ahead in the day, March’s Manufacturing Shipments are due in the Canadian economy, with consensus calling for an increase of 1.0% on a monthly basis. In the US, Producer Prices and Industrial Production will be in the limelight.

On the flip side, a breakdown of 1.0179 (hourly low May 15) would aim for 1.0152 (MA21d) and then 1.0099 (MA10d).
