EUR/USD Forecast and Trade Ideas for June 06 2016

Previous trading day:

Unexpectedly weak data posted on US nonfarm payrolls on Friday influenced currency pair move to new levels at 1.1360 from levels around 1.12 traded previously. Released data show only 38k of nonfarm payrolls during May which is lowest level of indicator for more than last five years. Data released for April of 160k was already lowest level since September last year, and with significant drop during May, it is not quite clear if US labour market is moving in direction expected by Fed. Due to this reason, market is estimating that widely expected increase of Fed rates might be postponed for period after June or July meetings, which was reflected in pricing of US Dollar during Friday session. Fed Chair Yellen will hold speech today, hopefully providing some comments on Feds view on current labour market developments.
