EURO-DOLLAR: Recovery off Thursday's post ECB react low of $1.1177 extended to
$1.1221 through Asia and the European morning ahead of today's release of key US
Employment data. Headline NFP miss (20k vs median forecast 180k) prompted a
spike on to $1.1241 before it pulled back to $1.1215 on slight upside revision
to January data and stronger than forecast earnings. The release however only
caused a slight hiccup to the EUR's recovery, which with the help of EUR/GBP (as
the pound lost ground on Brexit headlines), allowed EUR/USD to edge on to
$1.1246. Rate looked to be settling around $1.1240 as markets quieten down
toward the weekend. Fed Powell speaks after the market close, the last
appearance of a Fed official ahead of the pre-March meeting black out period.
