    FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD spiked to fresh daily highs as the knee-jerk reaction to weaker-than-expected US ISM mfg PMI, although it retraced some of its data-inspired gains over the last minutes.

    EUR/USD peaked at 1.0636, roughly at the same level it did on Friday, but quickly returned to pre-data levels as investors look past manufacturing data to focus on the jobs sector. Later this week, the US government will publish November nonfarm payrolls data, the last report before the decisive Fed’s meeting.

    But before the NFP, the European Central Bank will decide on monetary policy with consensus pointing for a deposit rate cut or an expansion of the QE programme, or a combination of both.
