EUR/USD  started the new week with a small gap lower, but quickly returned to the 1.3175 level, which serves as a magnet. It then continued higher, but quite carefully.

With a light calendar today, markets will be digesting the NFP and also Draghi’s cautiousness.

Here is a quick update on the technical situation, indicators, and market sentiment that moves euro/dollar.
