DOLLAR-CANADA: USD/CAD has advanced 15 pips so far and last deals at C$1.3275
after falling 19 pips Friday, as CAD led gains among G10 currencies, supported
by firmer oil prices & an unexpected acceleration in Canadian CPI (came in at 2%
against the 1.7% forecast, elevated by surging air-transport prices), while the
average of the 3 core measures held steady. 
- Worth mentioning on Friday WTI jumped to a 2-month high, as China reportedly
offered ways to eliminate U.S. trade imbalance. 
- Bulls look to Friday's high of C$1.3284 before shifting focus to the cloud top
at C$1.3295, followed by the Jan 17 high of C$1.3319. On the downside, bears
need a fall below C$1.3233, where the rate bottomed Friday, before targeting the
100-DMA at C$1.3199.
