    FXStreet (Córdoba) - The Australian dollar managed to recover slightly from lows after falling more than 80 pips throughout the day, dragged lower by weaker commodities and the risk aversion environment.

    AUD/USD reached a daily high of 0.7128 as the knee-jerk reaction to the Reserve Bank of Australia decision to leave the cash rate at the record low of 2.0%, as widely expected. However, the pair lost altitude and slid all the way to 0.7039, hitting a 3-day low before finding support.
