CANADA FX-C$ touches parity with US$ for first time since August
TORONTO Oct 29 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar weakened to parity with its U.S. counterpart on Monday, for the first time since August, as downbeat corporate earnings hurt the global growth outlook.
At 7:36 a.m. (1136 GMT) the Canadian dollar was trading at C$0.9997 to the greenback, or $1.0003, compared with C$0.9980, or $1.0020, at Friday's North American close.
Earlier on Monday, the Canadian dollar touched 1.000 to the U.S. dollar.
