 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.
