    FXStreet (Córdoba) - Commodity currencies are outperforming on Tuesday, with AUD/USD climbing to retest the 0.7000 psychological level as investors’ sentiment improved following rebounds in oil prices.

    AUD/USD picked up momentum early during the New York session and climbed to a high of 0.7000 and it continues to challenge the psychological level, currently trading at 0.6996, up 0.62% on the day.

    In the absence of top-tier data or events, FX pairs continue to take cues from related markets, with oil’s prices among main drivers.

    From a wider view, however, AUD/USD remains near multi-year lows scored earlier this month, having lost nearly 500 pips before finding an interim bottom at 0.6826.
