EUR/USD focus on US docket

There are no scheduled releases in Euroland today, with only 3m and 9m auctions of Letras in Spain and a10-year bond auction in France. All the attention will be across the pond where Non-farm Payrolls for the moth of September are due. Prior surveys expect the US economy to have created 180K jobs and the unemployment rate to stay put at 7.3%. Analysts at TD Securities suggested, “a break above 1.37 is a matter of time. And, have traded 1.27/1.37 over the past year, the technical implication of a sustained push through 1.3710 would be an extension towards the 1.46/1.47 area over the next 6-12 months”.
