C$ sinks to session low after U.S. jobless claims
TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar weakened to a session low after U.S. jobless claims rose to the highest level in four months last week, suggesting the U.S. labor market recovery lost some steam.
The higher-than-expected number of new claims for unemployment benefits pushed the Canadian dollar to C$1.0160 to the U.S. dollar, or 98.43 U.S. cents, down from Wednesday's North American session close at C$1.0145 to the greenback, or 98.57 U.S. cents.
