The Canadian dollar is trading lower against a basket of currencies on Thursday as an influx of mixed data is driving the loonie’s short-term performance towards the end of the trading week.

Canadian Dollar Rallies on Higher Oil Prices and Mixed CPI Data

The Canadian dollar today rallied higher against its southern neighbor driven largely by rising oil prices during the European session.

Loonie Tumbles After Surprising Drop of Manufacturing Sales

Canadian Dollar Weakens on Sliding Crude Prices, Sluggish Growth

The Canadian dollar is losing ground against its major currency rivals to kick off the trading week. The loonie is falling on sliding crude oil prices, bearish economic data, and a dovish Bank of Canada (BOC) that is unlikely to raise interest rates for another few months.
