AUD/USD reaches fresh 3-week high

FXStreet (Córdoba) - AUD/USD pushed higher and reached its highest level in 3 weeks as the mild risk-on mood continued to support the Aussie.

AUD/USD stretched to a fresh high of 0.8885 but the move lacked follow-through as investors remain cautious ahead of the Federal Reserve decision. The Fed is expected to end its QE program but it is unlikely to mention a specific timeline for any eventual rate hikes.

AUD/USD will likely extend its consolidative path heading into the decision, with 0.8900 as next bullish target. At time of writing, AUD/USD is trading at 0.8880, recording a 0.32% gain on the day.
