Canadian dollar holds on to this week's gains after robust U.S. data

By Fergal Smith TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar was little changed against its U.S. counterpart on Friday as the loonie held on to this week's gains even after data showed the U.S. economy expanded at its fastest clip in nearly four years. At 4 p.m. EDT (2000 GMT), the Canadian dollar was trading 0.1 percent higher at C$1.3061 to the greenback, or 76.56 U.S. cents. For the week, the loonie is on track to rise 0.7 percent.
