April 9, 2018.

The dollar index responded with a move lower to the disappointing NFP number Friday before the bell yet investor attention is now on the looming trade war between the White House and China and less on the job report numbers that did not take anybody by surprise. US markets traded lower on trade fears while commodities traded flat and OIL was sharply lower on US oversupply and the fear over China US trade war. OIL closed the week at below 63$ per barrel and down six percent from year highs just two weeks ago.

CAD BOC Business Outlook at 2:30 pm is the important news on the agenda Monday.
