The commodity currency Loonie strengthened despite a sudden fall in crude oil prices, which tend to undermine demand for the commodity-linked Loonie. The USD/CAD pair tumbled more than 100 pips on a weaker dollar.

 

Canadian Employment Report
At 12:30 (GMT), the Statistics Canada will be releasing the Canadian labor market report. As per economists forecast, the Employment Change is likely to be 12.7K which is way less than previous month’s 63.3K. While the unemployment rate is expected to remain unchanged at 5.9%.

The pair is likely to gain support near 1.3035 and 1.3015 today. On the upper side, the resistance can be found at 1.3095 and 1.3125. The RSI is already in the oversold territory which means we may see sellers taking a breather before making more selling in the market.
