CAD Weakens As Canadian May GDP Expanded Less Than Forecast

CAD Weakens As Canadian May GDP Expanded Less Than Forecast

Tzu-Wen Chen, Technical Strategist

THE TAKEAWAY: [Canadian economic growth improves but expansion slower than expected] > [Manufacturing decline offsets gains in retail and energy] > [CAD weakens]

Canada’s economy improved in May, albeit at a slower-than-expected pace of expansion, as a decline in manufacturing offset gains in retail trade and energy production. Canada’s real gross domestic product (GDP) grew 0.1 percent in May from a month earlier, after expanding 0.3 percent in April. The consensus forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News had called for 0.2 percent growth in May. On a yearly basis, GDP grew 2.4 percent in May, falling short of expectations for an increase of 2.6 percent.

According to a report released by Statistics Canada, mining and oil and gas extraction rose 0.6 percent in May following a 2.0 percent surge in April. Energy producers led the increase in May following maintenance and production difficulties in February and March. Retail trade gained 0.7 percent, while manufacturing fell 0.5 percent and construction declined 0.2 percent.
