DOLLAR-CANADA: USD/CAD trades flat at C$1.3262 after adding 44 pips Monday, as
CAD finished the day at the bottom of the G10 leaderboard, weighed on by a
decline in oil prices (WTI closed just below $52/barre) amidst worries re: a
global economic slowdown and a general risk-off feel to the session. 
- Worth mentioning the U.S. Department of Justice confirmed that it is seeking
the extradition of Huawei CFO Meng, currently detained in Canada, to charge her
with financial fraud. 
- Initial resistance is located at C$1.3269, which represents the 38.2% fibo
retracement of the move from C$1.3375 to C$1.3203. A break above would open up
yesterday's high of C$1.3286, followed by the psychological C$1.3300 level.
Conversely, bears need a fall through the Jan 18 low of C$1.3233 before
challenging the 100-DMA at C$1.3208. 
- Canadian highlights this week include domestic GDP due Thursday & m'fing PMI
due Friday, while BoC Dep Gov Wilkins is due to speak Thursday.
