During early Asian trading on Thursday, the Canadian dollar edged up against the Japanese yen. At about 10:50 pm ET, the loonie hit as high as 78.72 against the yen, which may be compared to Wednesday's North American session closing value of 78.23. If the loonie ticks up further, 79.4 is seen as the next likely resistance level.
