 TORONTO, April 15 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar touched
its highest level in 13 weeks against the U.S. dollar on
Wednesday as improved sentiment helped lift equities from
earlier lows and drew investors to riskier assets.
 The currency climbed as high as C$1.2013 to the U.S.
dollar, or 83.24 U.S. cents, which marked its strongest level
since Jan. 12.
 That was comfortably above the C$1.3066 to the U.S. dollar,
or 76.53 U.S. cents, that it fell to on March 9, which marked
its lowest point since September 2004.
 The Canadian dollar tracked North American equity markets,
with the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE rallying higher at
the end of the session, after dropping more than 1 percent
earlier in the day. U.S stocks indexes were generally
 Benjamin Reitzes, economist at BMO Capital Markets, said
the Canadian dollar and U.S. stocks essentially peaked at
around the same time, early in the afternoon.
 "Risk aversion and risk tolerance is still driving the
Canadian dollar," he said. "Investors were putting risk on and
the Canadian dollar benefited from that, as did equities."
 The Canadian dollar finished at C$1.2032 to the U.S.
dollar, or 83.11 U.S. cents, up from C$1.2140 to the U.S.
dollar, or 82.37 U.S. cents, at the end of Tuesday's North
American session.
 Economic data, including U.S. consumer prices and
industrial production figures, was largely weak.

economic activity in some parts of the U.S. economy appeared to
be stabilizing. [ID:nKWSkpJa]
 "The speed of the economic downturn is starting to slow
down a little and moderate a little bit and people are taking
heart from that and bidding up riskier assets," said George
Davis, chief technical strategist at RBC Capital Markets.
 "We are starting to (see) some instances where we're
getting topside surprises in the data and that is sort of
leading people to the conclusion that we are in an environment
where things are 'less bad'."
 Canadian data that may attract investor attention later
this week includes Thursday's February manufacturing sales
report and the consumer price index for March due on Friday.
 "We think that, at least in terms of the headline number,
we'll see the impact of higher food and shelter prices playing
a pretty important role," Charmaine Buskas, senior economics
strategist TD Securities, said of the CPI data. "We should see
a little bit of resilience in the core numbers as well."
 "We should see at least see a little bit of strength in the
Canadian dollar on the back of that," she added.
 With no major domestic economic news on Wednesday, Canadian
bond prices were lower across the curve as money flowed into
equity markets.
 "Equity prices were higher and that was taking a bit from
bonds," said Reitzes.
 The two-year bond was down 8 Canadian cents at C$100.25 to
yield 1.130 percent, while the 10-year bond retreated 17
Canadian cents to C$107.05 to yield 2.938 percent.
 The 30-year bond fell 65 Canadian cents at C$123.25 to
yield 3.668 percent. In the United States, the 30-year treasury
yielded 3.6616 percent.
 Canadian bonds underperformed their U.S. counterparts, with
the 30-year 0.64 basis points below its U.S. counterpart,
compared with 2.5 basis points on Tuesday.
