    The in the US gained 390K after adding 436K in April against market expectations of 325K. The remained unchanged at 3.6% in May, although it was expected to decline a little bit. The showed 0.3% m/m, which was behind the expected reading.

    Overall, the labor market data is looking rather “humble” and doesn’t provide the US Fed with sound reasons for being more aggressive in its monetary policy tightening – it was the major risk factor of these reports, and it didn’t materialize.

    In the H4 chart, after completing the descending wave at 1.0630 along with the correction up to 1.0760, EUR/USD is expected to form one more descending structure to break 1.0603 and may later continue trading downwards with the target at 1.0474.
