European shares were poised to fall for a seventh straight session while the dollar edged lower with investors largely holding back as the contentious U.S. presidential campaign entered its final week. Earlier in the day, stronger-than-expected manufacturing data from China underpinned gains in Asian stocks and further stoked inflation expectations that drove a selloff in bonds in recent weeks. Trading volumes were light across major exchanges. The dollar was slightly weaker against a basket of currencies with the dollar index down 0.2 per cent. In a busy week for central banks, the Bank of Japan and Reserve Bank of Australia held their policies steady as expected. Currently, the TSX is up 0.33% and the Dow is down 0.06%. EURCAD is up 0.29% trading between 1.4696 and 1.4771. GBPCAD is down 0.30% trading between 1.6326 and 1.6438. JPYCAD is down 0.19% trading between 0.01274 and 0.01282. Gold is up 0.80% trading between $1,275 and $1,289USD/oz., silver is up 0.40% trading between $17.85 and $18.39USD/oz., while oil is up .29% trading between $46.59 and $47.32.
