What’s Moving

Very quiet session in Europe on Friday ahead of the U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls report, which is pretty much the leading economic data each month. Payrolls printed firmer than expected, with 390k new jobs added from talk of 325k. The Unemployment rate rise slightly to 3.6% on seasonals.

The Non-Farm Payrolls report saw a good bid enter the Dollar, with best gains seen against the Yen, while another surge in oil helped support commodity currencies.

US. Equities ended weaker on the day and on the week.
