The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 6% last month in line with the expectations.Full time employment increased by 80,500 whereas part time employment decreased by 33,300.

AUDUSD trimmed its losses after the report and surged to find resistance at .9075 which was earlier acting as the support for the pair. The pair is now moving sideways. Further movement will be driven by the US Retail Sales Data and Jobless data coming out at 8:30 AM EDT.
