FXStreet (Córdoba) - USD/CAD resumed the upside and gathered enough momentum to break above the 1.1000 level to hit its highest level in over 4 months.

A small miss in Canadian housing starts also helped to undermine the loonie. Data showed Canadian housing starts fell 3.7% in August to an annualized rate of 192.4K, versus expectations of 195.5K.
