The USD/CAD pair is moving somehow sideways in the short term. It's still located in the buyer's territory, so further growth is favored. The Dollar Index maintains a bullish bias, further growth could help the USD to appreciate versus its rivals.
Though, today the pair will be driven by the fundamentals. The US and the Canadian data could really shake the markets. The Canadian Unemployment Rate could drop from 6.7% to 6.6%, while the Employment Change could be reported at 36.5K above 31.2K in the previous reporting period.
On the other hand, the US NFP is expected at 553K in November versus 531K in October, while the Unemployment Rate could drop from 4.6% to 4.5% in the last month.
