    FXStreet (Córdoba) - The US dollar managed to climb to fresh daily highs versus its Canadian counterpart and approached the 1.4000 level as markets enter holiday mode.

    resumed the upside following a short-lived correction seen last Friday, and climbed to a high of 1.3993 stalling just shy of its 11-year peak of 1.4003 as oil consolidates near 6-year lows amid supply glut concerns. At time of writing, USD/CAD is trading at 1.3977, up 0.32% on the day.

    While the greenback has been strengthening in the lead up to the Fed lift-off, the loonie has faced growing pressure coming from lower commodity prices, sending USD/CAD to levels not seen since 2004.
