    FXStreet (Córdoba) - USD/CAD resumed its long-term rise and climbed above the 1.4300 level to score a fresh 13-year high of 1.4314, exactly at the same level it peaked back in May 2003.

    The loonie came under renewed pressure during the American session, as the risk-on rally faltered and oil prices resumed the fall, with WTI sliding toward $30.00 a barrel after a short-lived bounce.

    USD/CAD reached a high of 1.4314, stalling at its May 2003 peak. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.4295, 0.57% above its opening price.
