Today's expected range for the Canadian Dollar against the major currencies:

Economists was expecting today that the inflation rate will have dropped to 3.2% (down from 3.6%) and the important monthly core reading will remain steady at 0.2%. In fact, the CPI, an inflation gauge, rose 3.7% in August from a year earlier, up from July’s 3.2% rise. That is hotter than the economists. More likely, the US Dollar give back some strength as it will give the Federal Reserve a clear path to pause on an interest rate hike next month, as was planned.

Nothing really to report for the Loonie at the moment as USD.CAD remains range bound ahead of the US report, USD.CAD opens the day near the 1.3550 (0.7380) level where it will remain until we see the inflation numbers. The Loonie did once again pick up a little strength against the Pound as the UK GDP numbers came in weaker than expected and showed that economy may be heading into a recession.

Stocks at the moment are pointing lower on the opening and they will remain volatile as the inflation report is released, overall look for the markets to have a busy morning and the Dollar to move around after the inflation report.
