    AUD/USD was sold-off further overnight in the US shift due to a poor performance on Wall Street and in a continuation of the long covering witnessed as a result of yesterday's RBA statement on the price of the Australian dollar.

    While rates were left at 2%, RBA Stevens suggested yesterday, in his words, that “under present circumstances, an appreciating exchange rate could complicate the adjustment under way in the economy.” This was always a risk leading into the meeting, so there were no surprises there and a sell-off was the result, down to test the bulls commitments at the 0.75 handle where the price has stablised, consolidated and started to correct.
