USD selloff gathers pace

A selloff in the US is underpinning AUD/USD pushing it higher. The US Dollar Index (DXY) settled in the red in the last two sessions and was extending losses further hitting a 3-week low at 93.20.  DXY trades -0.37%  at 93.23.

The risk on environment is making it hard for the USD to gain ground. European stock indexes also pushed northwards reflecting risk on trading the S&P 500 futures are up0.6%.

There is no more US macro data so risk sentiment is expected to continue to drive the USD.
