Canada July 2018 employment report on 10.08.2018

  • prior 31.8K

  • Part time employment change 82K vs 22.7K prior

Better headline but the seasonal rotation between full- and part time jobs put a damper on it.

USDCAD saw an initial drop to 1.3050 on the headline but has recovered to 1.3085 by now
