- Softer US consumer inflation figures do little to inspire the USD bulls.
- A slump in Oil prices seemed to be the only factor lending some support.
The USD/CAD pair held on to its mildly positive tone through the early North-American session, albeit continued with its struggle to make it through the 1.3300 handle post-US CPI.
The ongoing slump in Crude Oil prices, now down nearly 3.0% for the day and sliding below the $52.00/barrel mark, weighed on the commodity-linked currency - Loonie and turned out to be one of the key factors lending some support to the major.
The uptick, however, lacked any strong bullish conviction on the back of a subdued US Dollar price action as market participants seemed convinced that the Fed will need to cut rates sooner rather than later amid a series of weak domestic macro data.
The latest disappointment came from the US consumer inflation figures, showing that the headline CPI eased more than expected to 1.8% yearly rate in May and core CPI also ticked lower to 2.0% from 2.1% recorded in the previous month.
The data reinforced market expectations and continued exerting some downward pressure on the greenback, which might continue to keep a lid on any meaningful up-move, at least for the time being.
