Inflation in Canada rose back to its fastest pace in four months but remains stubbornly low overall, and as a result, the Canadian Dollar has weakened marginally following the release. The data, released at 08:30 EDT/12:30 GMT, came in mostly in line, with only the headline monthly reading – the least important of the four reported – missing by one-tenth of a percent.

Following the announcement, the USDCAD moved up marginally, from C$1.0364 ahead of the release to as high as 1.0390 soon after. At the time this report was written, the pair had eased back to 1.0387.
