FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Despite current weakness in Euro making a 2-day low against the USD, the single currency is having a fest against the Aussie, last at 1.3285, off recent fresh 1.5-year high at 1.3319, printed on the back of Fed chairman Bernanke's comments in early NY trade.

According to FXWW founder Sean Lee, “One big macro fund bought EUR/AUD in size” during the European trade, the analyst said, “and this also triggered buying in diverse crosses like EUR/GBP and EUR/CHF.” EUR/AUD is up +0.78% so far for the week, while +4.56% year to date, and +6.03% in last six months.
