Forex Flash: CAD correlation to oil and stocks rises – TD Securities

“The market struggled to push higher through the 1.0350 earlier this month, opening the door for a modest consolidation/correction in funds after the strong rally from the par zone”, wrote TD Securities analyst Shaun Osborne and Greg Moore, adding that while there is not clarity on Cyprus, modest USD/CAD dips are a buy to the 1.02 area in the near-term.
