Friday’s U.S. economic news was bullish for the dollar.  Jan nonfarm payrolls surged +517,000, much stronger than expectations of +188,000 and the largest increase in 6 months.  Also, the Jan unemployment rate unexpectedly fell -0.1 to a 53-year low of 3.4%, showing a stronger labor market than expectations of an increase to 3.6%.  In addition, the Jan ISM services index rose +6.0 to 55.2, stronger than expectations of 50.5.
