The Canadian dollar is the worst performing G10 currency today. One can name lacklustre domestic data as a reason behind the drop. Namely, manufacturing sales in December slumped 1.3% MoM (expected advance of 0.4% MoM). Apart from that, as Canada’s reliance on oil industry is quite significant, Loonie is taking a hit from declining crude prices. USDCAD trades at 1.3321 (+0.50%) at 2:53 pm GMT.
