Beating expectations, the Australian trade balance report for the month of December rallied the Aussie dollar, leading the AUDUSD to its highest level since the end of October. Against expectations of a contraction in the surplus to A$ 1.2 billion this month from A$ 1.343 billion last month, the trade balance figure soared to A$ 1.709 billion.
