The Canadian dollar manages to keep the bid tone intact against its American counterpart in the Asian session this Thursday, keeping USD/CAD within a striking distance of fresh four-day lows struck at 1.3049 earlier on the day.
USD/CAD supported above 50-DMA at 1.3039
Currently, the USD/CAD pair trades +0.16% higher at 1.3221, having printed fresh session highs at 1.3229 in the last hour.

In the day ahead, the major will be left to the mercy of the oil price-action until the NA session, with the US GDP data lined up for released alongside a slew of Fed speaks.
