USD/CAD focus on US docket, Canada

Spot posted weekly highs around the mid-1.1000s in early trade, however the upside lost momentum and deflated to the current 1.0990/95 area. Ahead in the day, US flash manufacturing PMI gauged by Markit for the month of September (58.0 exp.) and Canadian retail sales (0.5% MoM in July exp.) will grab all the attention.

Once again, key rate differentials remain USDCAD supportive but they are not yet justifying new gains”.
