USD-CAD found added support from an unexpected 0.1% dip in Canadian April GDP. EUR-USD dropped to a low of 1.1112 before settling around 1.1150 , still around a big figure down on the day’s peak. USD-CAD punched through last Wednesday’s high at 1.2423 on route making a three-week peak at 1.2500. The yen outperformed.
