(Updates to close, adds details, quotes)
 By Jennifer Kwan
 TORONTO, April 9 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar rose
against the U.S. currency on Thursday as global equity markets
surged on optimism about the U.S. banking sector, whetting
appetite for risk in the foreign exchange market.
 An upbeat earnings estimate from Wells Fargo (WFC.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), the
fourth-largest bank in the United States, helped to light the
fire under equity markets. [ID:nN09260398]
 "The overall trend in the market was pointing toward
further strength, with the risk appetite continuing and even
increasing further today on the back of good guidance from
Wells Fargo," said Matthew Strauss, senior currency strategist
at RBC Capital Markets.
 "We saw commodity-based currencies and cyclical currencies
doing very well."
 The Canadian dollar finished at C$1.2252 to the U.S.
dollar, or 81.62 U.S. cents, up from C$1.2373 to the U.S.
dollar, or 80.82 U.S. cents, at Wednesday's close.
 The market generally shrugged off big Canadian job losses,
which came in worse than expected, but not as bad as the most
dire forecasts.
 Data on Thursday showed Canada shed 61,300 jobs in March,
while the unemployment rate shot up to a seven-year high.
[ID:nN09253705] That was worse than the 55,000 job losses
forecast by analysts surveyed by Reuters, but the figure came
in under the high-side forecast of 90,000 job losses.
 Government data also showed Canada posted a small trade
surplus in February after two months of deficit.
[ID:nN09258996]
 "The trade number was a welcome surprise. It lent some
support," said Strauss.
 Also adding to market confidence were reports that the U.S.
trade deficit narrowed 28.3 percent in February, while weekly
jobless claims fell. [ID:nN09264963].
 As well, the price of oil CLc1, a key Canadian export,
rose above $52 a barrel, fueled by the rally on Wall Street.
 Markets in Canada will be closed on Friday for the Easter
holidays.
 BOND PRICES LOWER
 Canadian bond prices were lower across the curve as rising
stock markets and hope for economic stabilization dented the
appeal of safe-haven government bonds. [ID:nN09511115]
 "As people sense some stabilization in the economy they
probably anticipate some action down the road," said Millan
Mulraine, economics strategist at TD Securities.
 "That will be reflected in the bond market, as in
pressuring bond prices and driving yields higher."
 The two-year Canada bond was down 7 Canadian cents at
C$100.27 to yield 1.121 percent, while the 10-year bond
retreated 45 Canadian cents to C$107.02 to yield 2.942
percent.
 The 30-year bond was down 50 Canadian cents to C$123.65 to
yield 3.648 percent. In the United States, the 30-year Treasury
yielded 3.7490 percent.
  Canadian bonds mostly outperformed their U.S.
counterparts. The 30-year bond yield was 10.1 basis points
below its U.S. counterpart, compared with 4.90 basis points on
Wednesday.
