    FXStreet (Córdoba) - USD/CAD jumped after the release of the Non-Farm payroll report and continued to rise after Wall Street opening bell. The better-than expected Canadian data fail to offset upbeat data from the US.

    The loonie was also affected by a decline in crude oil prices during the last hours. The WTI barrel dropped below $45.00 to $44.30, hitting the lowest since October 28. Despite the rally of the USD/CAD pair, the Canadian dollar is the best performer among commodity currencies on Friday. In Canada, the labour market also surprised to the upside in October. The net change in employment increased by 44K, crushing the 10K of market consensus.
