AUD/USD Current Price: 0.7928
- Resurgent commodities’ prices provided support to the aussie.
- AUD/USD trades at fresh three-year highs without signs of bullish exhaustion.
The Australian dollar is among the best performers, trading against its American rival in the 0.7920 area, its highest in three years. The aussie’s positive momentum was backed by resurgent commodities’ prices, with gold recovering well above the 1,800 level. Wall Street also provided support, with the DJIA trimming its latest losses and nearing record highs. Data wise, the Australian macroeconomic calendar will remain empty until next Wednesday, when the country will publish the Q4 Wage Price Index.
