According to Valeria Bednarik, FXstreet.com collaborator, AUD/USD is under pressure on gold high prices: Small dollars continue falling along with oil that hovers around 74.00 dollars a barrel and gold that remains just above the 920.00 zone. Stocks slid 100 points at the opening in Wall Street, triggering more risk aversion and sending investors to dollar safe haven.
