AUD/USD erased all loses, back above 0.9630

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Aussie has erased all initial losses against the USD seen in early Tokyo trade, when printed fresh weekly lows at 0.9595, following a broad USD move higher. Now trading last near session highs at 0.9650, the pair is back to the positive for the Asia-Pacific.

Flat for the week though, the AUD/USD has bounced more than 50 pips from recent session lows, with US equity futures also near session highs, and Australian ASX index up +0.31%. According to IFR Markets analyst John Noonan, model fund buying is behind recent pop in AUD/USD, squeezing out short's stop loss positions.

To the downside, closest support lies at Monday's lows 0.9615, followed by mentioned session/weekly lows at 0.9596, and Thursday's fresh 11-month lows at 0.9591.
