The main numbers were a much stronger than expected outcome as follows:

The employment headline was +32.8K vs the expected +20K and the prior +5.6K. The unemployment rate: 5% vs the expected 5.1% and matched the prior 5.0% the full-time employment change at +42.3K was very impressive vs the prior +20.3K although the part-time employment change came in at  -9.5K vs the prior of -14.7K. The participation rate was slightly higher at 65.6% vs the expected 65.5% and prior 65.4%, (offsetting the parttime increase disappointment).

AUD/USD has already been looking strong into the data following an impressive day in New York despite the number of headwinds surround the commodity complex. AUD/USD moved up from London's Breit woe associated lows down at  0.7170 through the 0.72 handle into the 0.7220s into the North American close; That was despite the accumulated 25% drop in WTI and US benchmarks markedly lower again for a fourth session with the VIX spiking to 23.
