  • EUR/USD is currently having a small bullish reaction after the US Nonfarm Payrolls came in worse-than-expected at 157K versus 190K forecast while the Average Hourly Earnings in July annualized came in line at 2.7%.  
  • After finding support at 1.1562 in early Europe, EUR/USD is now attempting to keep its gains above the 1.1600 level in order to reach the 200-period simple moving average and the 1.1640 level. Buyers have a fair chance in creating a bullish reversal but they would need to break above the 200 SMA and 1.1640 in order to eliminate the risk of the bear trend resumption.  
  • Sellers are working hard in order to maintain the market below 1.1600 but as the market is trading above the 50 and 100 SMA, bulls have for the moment a slight advantage.
