With WTI falling to the lowest since 1999, during Monday's Asian session, USD / CAD takes the bids to 1.4075, up 0.55 per cent on a day. While initially taking risks

USD / CAD takes out the bids, snapping the losing streak for two days.

WTI has been falling to the lowest since 1999, in the face of demand-supply concerns.

Risk-off renewal after updates on fresh coronavirus.

U.S. and Canada second-tier data will join news for fresh direction on the virus.

While initial risk-off seems to have triggered the early-Asian fall of the Loonie pair, the latest news of Canada's mass shootings and the plunge in oil prices could have called for further downside.

While describing Canada's deadliest attack in years, the Washington Post came out with news suggesting at least 10 dead, including gunman.

On the other hand, US economic restart odds appear to dwindle after the Reuters tally suggesting more than 40,000 death tolls and 744,000 infections in the US keeping it as the global hotspot.

Nonetheless, US President Donald Trump is dropping the hint for another aid package while also suggesting talks on Monday between Vice President Mike Pence and state governors.

Risk-tone remains heavy with US 10-year Treasury Yields falling from one base point (bp) to 0.645 percent with Japan's NIKKEI dropping by more than 1.0 percent to 19.690 by the time of press.

Traders will keep an eye on the US and Canada virus updates as well as second-tier data, namely the Chicago Fed National Activity Index and Wholesale Sales.
