EUR/USD higher on Non Farm Payrolls collapse

US Nonfarm Payrolls have collapsed to 74k against expectations of 196k and 241k previous causing spot to push higher to where it is presently trading at 1.3648 in the immediate aftermath. However, it should be noted that the US Unemployment rate fell to 6.7% from 7% previous. Elsewhere, Average Hourly Earnings declined to 0.1% from 0.2% expected. The result is that likely the Fed will remain in Dovish mode, with the tapering debate postponed until March, just a day after the Dovish ECB meet.
