The currency weakened to the lowest in a month on Friday, capping the first weekly decline versus its U.S. counterpart since the five days ended April 10. The sudden reversal comes as a rebound in prices for crude oil, Canada’s largest export, slowed, and a report Friday showed consumer prices fell in April even as signs of inflation picked up in the U.S. Traders are downgrading expectations that Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz will be able to maintain the optimism he’s adopted in recent weeks.
