EUR/AUD is last around session lows at 1.3071, off session highs at 1.3117, touched two times already, and almost same price the cross ended previous week, down so far -0.27% for the day, mostly on the back of Euro weakness. Gold is printing fresh weekly highs above the $1670 handle.

EUR/AUD is now around Friday's NY session lows post NFP.

Immediate support to the downside for EUR/AUD lies at mentioned Friday's NY session lows 1.3056, followed by Jan 30 lows at 1.3042, and Thursday's lows at 1.2989. To the upside, closest resistance shows at recent session highs 1.3117, followed by Friday's fresh 13-month highs at 1.3189, and Dec 2011 highs at 1.3231.
