Leaving home



Thursday is going to be hot, at least we hope so, as too many very important events are here. The pair has already showed some agitation on ADP employment data release, and if Non-Farm Payrolls prove to be stronger than expected, the pair may finally fly out of the narrow cage, breaking the ceiling at 102.00. The initial target to the upside may lay at 102.41 resistance level.
