Key quotes

"Today, the market expects the US economy to add 225K and unemployment rate to retrace back to 6.1%."

"The dollar may look exhausted in the short term, yet if numbers outcome such expectations, will probably continue advancing: a break through the 1.2920 mentioned low should see a quick slide towards 1.2880 price zone, while if the downward acceleration extends, next target stands at 1.2845."

"If the reading however disappoints, market may take the opportunity to profit from recent slide, generating an upward corrective movement: 1.3000 critical figure is the first level to watch, while if above, 1.3050 is next."
