The Canadian dollar is lower this morning, a mid-performer in the G10 space against the USD. The recovery in domestic oil prices has stalled, as Western Canada Select struggles to eclipse $25/barrel. Canadian manufacturing sales fell 0.4% in August, which was marginally better than expectations. There are no additional domestic releases scheduled for today, with Friday’s CPI and retail figures providing the next major event risk for CAD.
Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.2950 – 1.3050
