08:05 EDTCanada Manufacturing Preview
Canada Manufacturing Preview: Analysts expect factory shipments to rise 1.0% m/m in September (median same at +1.0%) after the 3.3% plunge in August. Supportive of our projection, export values rose 1.1% in September after a 2.5% drop in August. An as-expected bounce in manufacturing would further underpin the view that the pull-back in manufacturing and exports during August was temporary. The August export decline was in large part due to a shift in the annual retooling schedule, which was likely also a culprit behind the weakness in August manufacturing.
