The USD/CAD continues to sell-off after hefty losses yesterday on the back of an Iran fuelled oil price surge.

Even the USD/CHF looks to be peeling back from the highs.

Yen pairs are mixed after hefty gains made yesterday. The USD/JPY is on the back foot, while the EUR/JPY and GBP/JPY build on yesterday’s gains.
