The euro rose against the US dollar on the back of negative data on the labor market. Following the data release, the Treasury yield fell to 1.62%, which supported the bulls in the pair.

The main scenario for EUR/USD is cautious buying. The technical picture looks bullish. The MACD is above zero, but divergence has formed, which indicates an approaching correction. The ADX showed a low reaction to the northern impulse, indicating a decrease in bullish pressure.

Alternative scenario: if the price consolidates below the level of 1.1836, the pair may return to the decline to 1.1704. A breakout of 1.1915 would indicate continued growth.
