Forex Trading Live Update, Friday 3rd August

by Joe Oliver, Forex Trading-Pips

The US dollar fell versus most major currencies on Friday after U.S. employers added more jobs than forecast in July while the unemployment rate rose to a five-month high. Non-farm payrolls came in at 163,000 jobs created last month, which was above expectations of 100,000.

USD.CAD broke through parity following release of the Nonfarm Payroll numbers with the ‘loonie’ headed for its 4th straight week of gains versus its US counterpart.
