The USDCAD pair struggles to capitalize on its intraday uptick and meets with a fresh supply near the 1.3555 regions during the early European session on Monday.
The downward trajectory drags spot prices to the 1.3465 area, or the lowest level since September 22, and is sponsored by the prevalent selling bias surrounding the US Dollar.
In fact, the USD Index, which measures the greenback’s performance against a basket of currencies, adds to the post-NFP slump and turns negative for the second straight.

The mixed results from the closely-watched US monthly jobs report fueled speculations that the Fed could slow the pace of future rate hikes. This, along with an intraday positive turnaround in the risk sentiment, is seen weighing on the safe-haven greenback.
The Canadian Dollar, on the other hand, might continue to draw support from the blockbuster domestic employment details. Apart from this, the emergence of some dip-buying around crude oil prices could underpin the commodity-linked Loonie and supports prospects for a further depreciating move for the USDCAD pair.
Moreover, acceptance below the 50-day SMA, around the 1.3500 psychological mark adds credence to the negative outlook.
