EUR/USD Up, Up, Up It Goes… Warming Up for 1.13?
EUR/USD has rapidly surpassed the 1.1200 handle following miserable print from May Non-farm Payrolls, coming in at 38K vs. 164K from prior surveys.
EUR/USD closer to 1.1300
Spot surged following the huge miss from US Payrolls during last month, where the Average Hourly Earnings matched expectations, rising 0.2% MoM and Average Weekly Hours stayed unchanged at 34.4.
The up move gathered extra steam as market participants have quickly reduced their expectations of a rate hike by the Fed at the June meeting, increasing the selling mood around the dollar.
