Analysis and Recommendations:

The USD/CAD gained 6 points to 1.3066 as the Loonie gained momentum on the climb in oil prices which helped it combat the rising US dollar.  Traders see a 52 percent chance the Fed will boost interest rates from near zero by its December meeting, up from 34 percent odds on Oct. 26, the day before the central bank last met. The calculations are based on the assumption the effective fed funds rate will average 0.375 percent after the first increase, compared with the current range of zero to 0.25 percent.

Fed officials scheduled to speak on Wednesday include Yellen, Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer and New York Fed President William C. Dudley.

Robust employment figures from the United States will confirm the resilience of the rebound by the world’s top economy and further raise the likelihood that its central bank will finally lift interest rates at its December policy meeting.

Investors shrugged off China’s services sector data which came in relatively stronger, easing concerns over persistent weakness in the economy.

“The main focus will be on the U.S. ISM (non-manufacturing) number, this afternoon. U.S. trade data as well as the ADP employment report — the latter acting as a guide for the official payroll report,” Rand Merchant Bank currency strategist John Cairns said.

A likely strong labour momentum will be enough for the Fed to consider an interest rate hike this year
