    German IFO better than expected in April. The business climate index climbed to 111.2 from 110.7 last month while consensus had expected 110.4.
    The current assessment index was mostly unchanged at 115.3 from 115.2 and 115.6 expected, so the improvement in the headline index came from the expectations index, which rose to 107.3 from 106.4. Consensus had predicted a drop to 105.8.
    Overall a solid report made even better by the fact that it is the expectations index, which is the main driver.

    French manufacturing confidence declined to 100 in April as expected. However the drop came about as a result of an upward revision to March from 100 to 101.

    Overall business confidence also declined to 94 vs. 96 expected and 95 prior as the order outlook weakened while inventories rose. Not a good report.

    USDCAD Toronto Range 1.1018-1.1052

    The Canadian dollar didn't get any respect today. Decent Retail Sales numbers ( 0.5% gain with Jan and Dec revised upwards) failed to provide the loonie with any support. USDCAD touched the 1.1050 resistance level even though the US dollar was genrally softer vs Europe on weak US data. It seems that the BoC Governor's verbal intervention is taking a toll.Mario Draghi's speech and US Durable goods will govern direction today.

    The short term USDCAD technicals are modestly bullish while trading above 1.1022 looking for resistance in the 1.1050-70 area to break to extend gains to 1.1160. A move below 1.1020 will test support at 1.0990-1.1000.
