Canadian dollar hits 3-week low as domestic demand softens
Canadian dollar falls 0.4% against the greenback
Touches its weakest since Nov. 10 at 1.3557
Canada's third-quarter GDP increases 2.9%
Canadian bond yields rise across steeper curve
TORONTO, Nov 29 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar weakened to its lowest level in nearly three weeks against its U.S. counterpart on Tuesday as data showed faster-than-expected GDP growth in the third quarter but a decline in domestic demand.
Canada's economy grew at an annualized rate of 2.9% in the third quarter, above analysts' expectations, driven by exports and non-residential structures, Statistics Canada data showed.
Final domestic demand fell 0.6%, while a preliminary estimate showed that October's GDP was unchanged after the economy grew by 0.1% in September compared to August.
Money markets continued to expect a 25 basis point interest rate hike by the Bank of Canada at a policy decision next week, while seeing a 25% chance of a larger move. 0#BOCWATCH
