CAD News

TORONTO--The Canadian dollar was slightly lower early Wednesday, maintaining a range-bound trade after a quiet overnight session while second-tier domestic data failed to budge the loonie.
The U.S. dollar was recently at C$1.0989 early Wednesday, from C$1.0983 late Tuesday, according to data provider CQG.
The greenback was broadly higher to start the North American trading session, moving higher against the loonie, Australian dollar and yen. The only notable data point traders focused on during the overnight session was a disappointing release of Japan's Producer Price Index in August and falling consumer confidence in Australia.
In Canada, the loonie failed to react to data that showed the Canadian capacity utilization rate increased to 82.7% in the second quarter from a downwardly revised 82.1% in the prior quarter, but was below expectations of a 82.9% increase.
