AUD/USD             inched up to 0.7207, from 0.7187 in early trade, only to retreat back to 0.7190 levels

The pair has gained around two cents in the past two weeks but met heavy resistance near 0.7250, is likely to consolidate between 0.7150 and 0.7250 until fresh news emerges

RBA Governor Glenn Stevens speech is awaited at 0905 GMT             , and expectations are he might try and talk down the Aussie given it has proved resilient to a sharp fall in the price of iron ore (Australia's top export earner)
