The direction of the AUD/USD on Friday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to .7092.
The dollar edged higher Friday, ahead of the release of the latest monthly U.S. jobs report which could cement a quicker pace of tapering and, potentially, early interest rate hikes even amid the omicron-induced uncertainty. The data are released at 8:30 AM ET (1230 GMT).
The Australian dollar has fallen a bit during the session on Thursday as we continue to see a bit of a flush when it comes to risk appetite. That being said, the jobs number comes out on Friday and will almost certainly have an effect as well.
