AUD/USD eyes on the RBA

The pair is finishing the week in a positive note once again, posting weekly gains for the fourth consecutive time and thus extending the rebound from the mid-0.8600s. The present week was dominated by overseas events rather than domestic releases; however, the AUD managed to cope with the resurgence of the greenback, retaking and advancing beyond the 0.8800 limestone.
