    AUD/USD extended its pullback from 7-week highs on Wednesday and remains on the defensive amid risk aversion and a stronger greenback. In addition, the latest string of Australian economic data disappointed markets, which further collaborated to the weakness in the pair.

    next on tap, the US reports February Markit services and composite PMI, and January new home sales.
