AUD/USD is extending its rapid growth for the second day this Tuesday. The pair tested five-week high at 0.7431 on the back of RBA’s decision to leave rate unchanged at 1.75% at its monetary policy review meeting. However, leaving rate unchanged was expected. Also RBA noticed that inflation will keep its slow growth for a while.
