USD: NFP rose by 215K

Non-Farm Payrolls rose by 215K in July, which is slightly below consensus of 220K, but still above the critical level of 200K. American unemployment rate remained at 5.3%. Average hourly earnings, as expected, rose by 0.2% after a flat reading in June. 

Such fugures will likely support the expectations of the Fed's rate hike in September.
