CANADA FX DEBT-C$ softens after weak U.S., Canada data
TORONTO, Aug 19 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar extended losses against the greenback on Thursday after data showed initial U.S. jobless claims unexpectedly rose to a nine-month high and Canadian June wholesale trade stumbled.
The Canadian dollar CAD=D4 softened to C$1.0306 to the U.S. dollar, or 97.03 U.S. cents, immediately following the releases, down from Wednesday's finish at C$1.0287 to the U.S. dollar, or 97.21 U.S. cents. (Reporting by Claire Sibonney; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
