USD/CAD Achieves C$1.1200 as Canadian GDP Falls Flat in July

USD/CAD Achieves C$1.1200 as Canadian GDP Falls Flat in July

Talking Points:

- CanadianGDP came up short with a headline reading of +2.5% versus +2.8% expected.

- Weak growth disappointing in context of surprising manufacturing data in July.

- USDCAD trades above C$1.1200 for the first time since March 25.

Canadian Gross Domestic Product came up short of consensus estimates of +2.8% y/y, according to a Bloomberg News survey, with a headline reading of +2.5% y/y. Needless to say, this is a significant fall in Canadian growth from just the prior month reading of +3.1%. The headline reading was little changed most likely due to a greater than expected drop in oil and gas production, which effectively offset the surprise gains in manufacturing.

According to Statistics Canada, the output remained approximately C$1.63 trillion in July, which was the predecessor to six consecutive monthly increases. Oil and gas extraction fell by approximately -1.6% in July, which caused a relative fall of -0.9% in support activities associated with the industry.

Here’s a summary of the data this morning that’s stoked the USDCAD rally:

- CAD Gross Domestic Product (JUL): 0.0% versus +0.3% expected, from +0.3% (m/m).

- CAD GDP (JUL): +2.5% versus +2.8% expected, from +3.1% (y/y).

- CAD Industrial Product Price (AUG): +0.2% versus -0.2% expected, from -0.3% (m/m).

- CAD Raw Materials Price Index (AUG): -2.2% versus -1.5% expected, from -1.4% (m/m).
