    FXStreet (Córdoba) - USD/CAD continued to advance beyond the 1.3250 level and printed fresh 3-week highs during the American session as the loonie continues to weaken in tandem with oil prices.

    Despite disappointing US economic data, USD/CAD pushed to its highest level since early October at 1.3258 before taking a pause. The Canadian dollar is under broad pressure as crude oil fell more than 2% to $43.00 a barrel.

    In recent comments, BoC Deputy Governor Lane said that a weak CAD is boosting export competitiveness.
