  • The Aussie is seeing a limited bounce fueled by Dollar weakness.
  • Friday brings little data to the table, market direction in the hands of risk appetite to end the week.

The AUD/USD is still trading near 0.7370 after double-bottoming from the 0.7350 region on Thursday.

The US Dollar was forced down alongside Treasury yields in the US session for Thursday, helping to prop up the Aussie as the Greenback slumped across the board.

Friday brings little of note for either currency, though the US will be seeing Markit PMI figures at 13:45 GMT, where the headline Markit PMI Composite is expected to tick down to 55.1 from the previous reading of 56.6.
