TOKYO (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar dropped 0.3 percent in early Asian trade on Tuesday to a six-month low, with traders nervously waiting for the first U.S. presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

The Canadian dollar fell to C$1.3267 per U.S. dollar CAD=D4, its lowest level since late March, declining below its July trough of 1.3255.
