* Canadian dollar falls 0.1% against the greenback * Loonie hits its weakest since Oct. 11 at 1.3268 * Price of U.S. oil decreases 0.8% * Canadian bond prices rise across a flatter yield curve TORONTO, Nov 13 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar weakened to a one-month low against its U.S. counterpart on Wednesday, adding to its decline since the Bank of Canada shifted to a more dovish stance as investors became more pessimistic about global trade conflicts. Global shares fell after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to "substantially" increase tariffs if China failed to agree a trade deal, and he also took a swipe at European Union trade policies. Canada is a major exporter of commodities, including oil, so its economy could be hurt by a more uncertain outlook for global trade. Oil prices fell as fading prospects for a trade deal between the United States and China weighed on the outlook for the global economy and energy demand. U.S. crude oil futures were down 0.8% at $56.33 a barrel. At 9:06 a.m. (1406 GMT), the Canadian dollar was trading 0.1% lower at 1.3253 to the greenback, or 75.45 U.S. cents. The currency's strongest level of the session was 1.3230, while it touched its weakest since Oct. 11 at 1.3268. The loonie has declined by as much as 1.5% since Oct. 30, when the Bank of Canada cut its economic growth forecasts and expressed concern about global trade uncertainty. Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz is due to speak on Thursday, which could help guide expectations for the interest rate outlook. Money markets see about a 25% chance of a rate cut next month. Canadian government bond prices were higher across a flatter yield curve, outperforming U.S. Treasuries after data showed U.S. consumer prices rebounded more than expected in October. The two-year rose 6.5 Canadian cents to yield 1.57% and the 10-year was up 60 Canadian cents to yield 1.545%. (Reporting by Fergal Smith Editing by Nick Zieminski)
