The increase in the number of people employed in the United States turned out to be worse than economists' forecast. However, a decline in the overall unemployment rate to 3.7% did not lead to a serious drop in the US dollar against the euro, as a result, trades remained at the same morning levels. As for purchases of the European currency today, the most optimal area will be a weekly minimum of around 1.1463 in the second half of the day. The profit in such a scenario can be fixed at the middle of the channel 1.1500 or at the maximum of the day around 1.1541.

In the case of the euro rising to short positions, you can again return on a false breakdown from resistance 1.1541 or to rebound from a maximum of 1.1588.
