The U.S. Dollar Index is currently testing the support at the 90 level. In case the U.S. Dollar Index manages to settle below this level, it will head towards the support at 89.75 which will put more pressure on USD/CAD.

At this point, markets are focused on the threat of rising inflation. Tomorrow,  traders will have a chance to take a look at inflation data from the U.S.

Analysts expect that Inflation Rate will increase by 3.6% year-over-year while Core Inflation Rate will grow by 2.3%. The reports may have a significant impact on foreign exchange market dynamics, and traders should also keep an eye on the developments in U.S. government bond markets.

Currently, Treasury yields are moving higher, and the yield of 10-year Treasuries is trying to settle above the resistance at the 20 EMA at 1.60%. However, stronger yields do not provide support to the U.S. dollar which remains under pressure against a broad basket of currencies, and it remains to be seen whether higher yields will be able to provide more support to the American currency.
