AUD/USD recovers from 1-month lows but gains limited

FXStreet (Córdoba) - AUD/USD managed to recover some ground over the last sessions after falling sharply last Friday on the back of better-than-expected US nonfarm payrolls report.

The Australian dollar bounced from a 1-month low of 0.7022 scored on Friday, shrugging off disappointing Chinese data. However, the recovery stalled at the 0.7070 area at the beginning of the American session, confining the pair to a phase of consolidation. At time of writing, AUD/USD is trading at 0.7050, still up 0.36% on the day.
