Key Quotes:

"CAD correlations to typical drivers (oil prices, relative central bank policy) appear to be reasserting themselves, as we note an ongoing sensitivity to the broader tone."

"We see the Fed minutes as the most important near term risk for CAD, given the potential for a re-assessment of the view that has provided for broad-based USD weakness since last Friday’s disappointing U.S. employment release".
