Current trend

Yesterday, USD declined against CAD amid slowing growth in retail sales in the US, which is the main indicator of consumer spending.

Growth in retail sales in September was 0.1%, which was below the forecast of 0.5%. Core Retail Sales declined by 0.1%, while economists had expected growth by 0.4%.

On Monday, investors were focused on the comments of US President Donald Trump and his economic adviser Larry Kudlow. In an interview with CBS, Trump accused China of interfering in the American election process and did not exclude the introduction of new higher tariffs on Chinese goods if China does not open its markets and does not conclude a fair agreement with the US.

Today, investors should pay attention to the release of data on US Industrial Production, as well as on Capacity Utilization Rate (15:15 GMT+2). The market is expected to be moderately volatile.
