Hi, here is my forecast for 4th of April:

Non-farm payrolls rise way more than consensus estimates to 225,000 during the month of March, the US dollar stages a quick rally to 1.3650 after the unemployment rate is also lower by a full decimal point. Prices at the end of the hour are about 1.3660, and by the end of the day they continue dropping materially, when we are testing new lows around 1.3610.

As the payroll number hits the wires, the Euro is rising toward 1.3750 because of a weaker than expected number, however with the market getting a glimpse at the situation in Europe, renewed pressure drives the single currency lower to test 1.37 by the end of the hour, after the level is tested we see no follow through and at the end of the day the level is the same - 1.37.

Hello, I am posting my forecast on the eur/usd for today us nonfarm payrolls which will be released by the US Department of Labor at 12:30 GMT. Recently eur/usd is dropping from 1.3820 to 1.37 and I expect to continue dropping to 1.3620. Buying daily puts at current levels (1.37) would payout at the end of the day in my opinion. Good luck to all!

EUR faces bigger downside risks following yesterday’s ECB monetary policy meeting at which the ECB clearly signaled that it is prepared to utilize unconventional monetary policy easing. The downside will be pushed today by a high reading on the Non-farm payrolls which will end as bullish for the US Dollar. I would advise purchasing hourly lows all day long and finally eur/usd to reach 1.36 at 23:59 GMT 4th April.
