After digesting the quite disappointing US nonfarm payrolls report and higher unemployment rate, the EUR/USD is retracing most of the daily gains, capped at 1.3675 high, and on its way back to 1.3600 area.

The Unemployment Rate (January) was reported at 7.9%, against estimates calling for 7.8%.The US manufacturing PMI rose from 54.0 to 55.8 in January. ISM manufacturing PMI is due at 15:00 GMT, expected to move slightly higher, to 50.7.
