Canadian Dollar Falls As Economy Sheds Jobs, Raises Unemployment Rate

The Canadian dollar is sliding against several major currency rivals to finish out the trading week. The loonie’s descent was driven by a mostly disappointing labor report that saw the economy experience its weakest three-month period of job creation in more than a year. Housing numbers were also down, though many of them were better than what the market had anticipated.

The Canadian dollar is weakening against a basket of currencies midweek as the price of US crude oil cratered as much as 5%.

As economic data continues to be mixed, it might be a difficult second half for the currency.

The Canadian dollar was performing extremely poor today. While the loonie has managed to erase intraday losses versus the US dollar by now, the Canadian currency remained below the opening level against other most-traded rivals.

Canadian Dollar Recovers After Drop Caused by BoC Policy Decision

The Canadian dollar dropped today following the monetary policy decision made by the Bank of Canada.

The currency even gained on the US dollar, which weakened due to the outlook for interest rate cuts from the Federal Reserve.

Canadian Dollar Trades a Tad Higher After Positive Surprise from GDP

The Canadian dollar logged gains today, though they were very mild. As many other currencies, the loonie traded not far from the opening level as traders were waiting for news about the trade talks between the Unite States and China. As for domestic news, Canada’s gross domestic product provided a positive surprise, and other macroeconomic indicators were also above expectations.

Canadian Dollar Strengthens on Wholesale Data, Energy Prices

The Canadian dollar is strengthening midweek as wholesalers recorded their fastest two-month gain in about four years and crude oil prices continued their bullish ways. The loonie’s gains were capped on the accelerating diplomatic and economic fallout between Canada and China.
