CANADA FX DEBT-C$ edges lower with oil, global growth jitters
* C$ slips to C$0.9957 to the U.S. dollar, or $1.0043
* Bonds mixed
TORONTO, Aug 11 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar eased against the U.S. currency on Thursday on weakening oil prices, and concerns that the European debt crisis could spill over to France and hurt global economic growth.
Trade data from both Canada and the United States, due at 8:30 a.m., could be a factor influencing the currency, though analysts said broader factors would likely weigh on sentiment.
Concern has shifted to the health of French and Italian banks, which are heavily exposed to euro zone sovereign debt problems, but there was no evidence of fresh reasons for Thursday's declines. [MKTS/GLOB]
Those jitters weighed on riskier assets, with world stocks erasing gains after an early bounce and the price of U.S. oil also reversing to be off more than 1 percent, slightly below $82 a barrel. [O/R]
"The dominant factor will continue to be the global outlook on commodity prices," said Paul Ferley, assistant chief economist at Royal Bank of Canada.
"That in turn is related to the take on the global economy."
Canada's trade deficit for June is expected to have widened to C$1 billion from C$814 million in May. ECONCA
