    FXStreet (Córdoba) - USD/CAD climbed to fresh 7-week highs during the New York session as the loonie weakened in tandem with oil prices, and following disappointing manufacturing data from both countries.

    USD/CAD broke above the 1.3350 zone, which had capped the upside over the last sessions, and advanced to a peak of 1.3370, last seen Sept 30. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.3360, up 0.30% on the day.

    The greenback remains underpinned by expectations the Federal Reserve will raise rates in December, while soft oil prices keep the CAD under pressure.

    USD/CAD technical levels
