Statistics Canada reported today thatgross domestic productfell 0.1 percent in November after stalling in October and modestly expanding 0.2 percent in September. The reading missed consensus forecast as 23 economists polled by Bloomberg survey had called for an expansion of 0.2 percent.

The Canadian economy shifted into a reverse gear in November as gain in manufacturing output was insufficient to offset significant fall in oil and gas extraction. Extraction of oil and natural gas dropped 2.5 percent in the month as a result of crude petroleum maintenance shutdown and lower demand from overseas. In contrast, manufacturing output continued to rise 0.6 percent, the third straight month advance in the row, mainly due to 0.9 percent surge in the production of durable goods and 0.1 percent increase in non-durable goods. Besides, output in service-producing sectors increased 0.1 percent, in which retail sales continue to grow for the fourth straight month (+ 0.6 percent) while wholesale trade retreated (-0.6%) on lower wholesaling of miscellaneous products. In addition, finance and insurance sector posted a 0.4 percent decline in light of lower volume of trading on the stock exchanges and lower sales of mutual funds.
