    AUD/USD has been one of the top performers of late since the FOMC yesterday and while commodities have continued to recover, spurred on by dollar weakness.

    The Aussie was surprisingly resilient after yesterday's jobs data that showed that the Australia added 300 jobs in February vs 13,500 expected, which is another big miss, but the bulls kept buying and the pair managed a score through critical highs on the 0.76 handle at 0.7652 on a day where the US dollar was in big supply and oil scored the $40 mark.
