    Currently, the AUD/USD pair rises 0.51% at 0.7635, easing-off fresh six-day highs reached at 0.7646 in the last hour. The Aussie is seen consolidating the recent upmove as we progress towards the early European morning, with the bulls awaiting a reaction to the upbeat Australian business gauge numbers from the European traders.
