Canada Sept retail sales ex-autos 0.0% m/m vs +0.5% exp
- Prior reading was +0.4% (revised to +0.5%)

The gain was led by higher sales of cars, clothing and food and drink, but was tempered by fewer receipts at general merchandise stores and gas stations.
Soft report but USD/CAD is shrugging it off so far.
