Analysis and Recommendations:

The USD/CAD is starting off the day at 0.9770 with the greenback adding a few cents in early trade. There is no reason for the current weakness in the CAD, especially with oil prices moving up and the Dollar Index declining. Prices have been holding steady all night ahead of the Fed statement.

CAD underperformed for two reasons: 1) it had moved beyond fundamentals and used yesterday to retrace; 2) activity in EURCAD also pressured CAD. Today the focus is the FOMC, with domestic data releases of capacity utilization and new housing expected to have no market impact
