Yesterday, the Australian dollar pushed higher to hit a 15-month high. A softer US dollar helped propel the AUD/USD rate to 0.7181 before easing back about 0.5% this morning.

The Aussie dollar managed to strengthen despite a rise in coronavirus cases both locally and in the US. The extension of the JobKeeper and JobSeeker programs by the federal government set a positive tone for the local currency which also move higher agains many other major currencies.

While a higher AUD benefits Australians heading overseas, most locals can't take advantage of it with international travel bans likely to remain in place until at least 2020.
