Since March 2020, the Australian dollar has been very tough on the USD. From the crisis depths below 0.60, AUD/USD has risen to the current 0.78.

Don’t rush to see bullish domination though: there are commentaries that the US dollar may get back to strength. If that’s the case, we won’t see AUD/USD go as high as in 2009 or 2007. Let’s see.
