CANADA FX-Canadian dollar gives up session gains on weak retail sales
TORONTO, March 20 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar gave back much of its session gains, softening to a session low after retail sales came in much weaker than forecast.
The Canadian dollar touched C$1.2724 against the U.S. dollar, or 78.59 U.S. cents, weaker than just before the data, but little changed from Thursday's Bank of Canada close at C$1.2726, or 78.58 U.S. cents. (Reporting by Solarina Ho; Editing by Bernadette Baum)
