EUR/USD: Attempting to break above hourly 50-MA

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/USD is off the lows, but is struggling to rise above the confluence of the hourly 50-MA and 10-MA located at 1.0875 levels.

EUR –vulnerable to strong NFP?

The EUR appears as the most vulnerable major currency in case the NFP blows past estimates and leads to a rise in the December Fed rate hike bets. This is because the ECB has hinted at more easing in December.

The data due in a couple of hours is likely to show the US economy added 180K jobs in October, leaving the unemployment rate unchanged around 180K.
