• The US bond yields rebound from 15-month lows and lend some support to the USD.
• A strong pickup in crude oil prices underpin Loonie and kept a lid on any strong up-move.
The USD/CAD pair lacked any firm intraday directional bias and is currently placed in the neutral territory, around the 1.3400 handle.
The pair stalled its overnight retracement slide from two-week tops and managed to find some support near the 1.3385, albeit a combination of diverging forces failed to provide any meaningful impetus and led to a subdued/range-bound price action through the early European session on Tuesday.
A goodish rebound in the US Treasury bond yields from 15-month lows provided a minor lift to the US Dollar and extended some support to the major. The positive factor was largely offset by a strong pickup in crude oil prices, now up over 1.0%, which underpinned demand for the commodity-linked currency - Loonie and kept a lid on any meaningful up-move.
Hence, it would be prudent to wait for a convincing move in either direction before traders start positioning for any meaningful intraday momentum. Later during the early North-American session, the US economic docket, featuring the housing market data and followed by the Conference Board's Consumer Confidence Index will now be looked upon for some fresh impetus.
