The US workforce increased by 639K in October – that came a little lower than the September figure but still, it was better than the expected range of 510-600K. On a larger scale though, it is the smallest number since the recovery has started making its way through the crisis in April-May. The expectation for the coming figure is higher than the one before and goes beyond 600K. Therefore, if the market gets a positive surprise, the USD will be pushed.
