    AUD/USD has rallied in the US session as the greenback is hit from all sides on a series of poor data. The high has been 0.7212 from a low of 0.7145.

    First poor show came in the Markit services PMI's for Feb at 49.8 vs 53.5 and 53.2 prior. Then, new home sales change -9.2% vs -4.4% expected and 8.2% prior for m/m January. At the same time, oil rallied and price pared losses on the EIA Crude oil stocks change Feb 19 as data showed a much smaller build in U.S. crude inventories than an earlier industry report suggested, also supporting the Aussie.
