The Canadian dollar has given back some of yesterday’s Fed driven gains. CAD rallied yesterday afternoon following the release of the FOMC minutes, which raised concerns about low inflation. Canadian retail sales for September missed expectations by a wide margin, increasing 0.1% MOM against expectations of a 1% gain. Evidence is mounting that consumers have been more cautious in the second half of the year. There are no additional domestic releases scheduled for the remainder of today’s session.
Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.2650 – 1.2750
