The NFP was released on Friday, showing that the US added more jobs than expected in November; rushing the EUR to a 5 week high against the USD. The pair reached a high of 1.3721 and closed at 1.3705. The positive date on Friday confirmed that the unemployment rate fell to a five year low of 7% and the economy added 203K jobs in November; 23K more than investors expected.
