The new high at 97.11 is the highest level since June 2013, more than one year ago. The current move is a break above the levels seen earlier in the week.

The tables have certainly turned in favor of the Australian dollar. Only the Canadian dollar is enjoying similar relative strength at the moment. All the rest, including the kiwi, are falling against the strength of the US dollar, which enjoys the lack of Fed dovishness.
