Better-than-expected reports on the Canadian labour market contributed to slight increase in the USD/CAD exchange rate, though the pair remained near the lowest level in 28 months. The Greenback strengthened against the Canadian Dollar by 0.23% to start an upmove until the 1.2158 mark..
Statistic Canada showed on Friday that the country's unemployment rate dropped surprisingly to 6.2% in August, compared to the 6.3% reading in the prior month. The report also revealed that the Canadian economy added 22K jobs last month. Strong data fuelled expectations for the economy to expand further at a solid pace, underlined by the BoC unexpected decision to raise the key interest rate to 1.0%.
