Get Ready For US Nonfarm Payrolls This Week!

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on the ECB Monetary Policy and the US Job Reports this week.

An upbeat employment report will point to an improving US Economy and support the greenback.
Moreover, The Fed Chair Jerome Powell will speak on Friday about monetary policy normalization at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research Economic Summit, in California.
