Do we have to deal with the downturn in the labor market, since the unemployment rate remained at 5.5%? In any case, the will have reason to consider a proposed increase in interest rates in June or September.
Despite this weak US data, keep in mind that all the time, the US economy is a lot better than the European, and perhaps this is temporary shortness of breath.

Forecast for Monday:
Tomorrow some markets is not running, which can lead to further strong movements. At the moment, the market is pretty much bought which should allow for a small correction in the direction of the first support 1.0953 and 1.09. Given that once again we find ourselves between 1.1032 1,09- be careful. We are close to recent highs, which pretty much was defended by supply. However, there is a possibility that the market after the correction will want to attack the last resistance again. In case of breaking the top of the euro will develop a greater correction!
In summary the preferred option is a small correction in the vicinity of 1.09, (here should be closely monitored course, if the support will be defended demand is likely to be attacking the last summit.
The alternative version 1.09 will be defeated and the next of 1.0870 should be and 1.0830
