Highlights include:

USD:  The surge in retail sales suggested the world’s biggest economy was rebounding after it shrank 3.5% in 2020, its deepest downturn since 1946.
CAD: Evidence of a relatively short-lived Canadian slowdown would bode bullishly for the C$s coming prospects.
GBP: GBP/USD is near the top end of its post-Brexit trading range, but a stretch higher cannot be ruled out before a potential pullback given short-term overvalued conditions.
EUR: Political risks could be back on the map with a general election in Netherlands and two regional votes in Germany.
JPY: Markets are concerned that the rise of inflationary pressures in the USA could generate a “taper tantrum” shock like 2013 when the FED sent signals about reducing support.
