Awaiting the US NFP data

Today we have the employment data from the US. The non-farm payrolls, the unemployment rate and the average hourly earnings are due at 12:30 GMT. The ADP employment numbers earlier this week missed the expectations but the labour unit cost saw a jump in the first quarter. That leaves the market puzzled for today´s numbers. Will we see a small decline in the employment numbers but a jump in the earnings?

 We opened a short term sell signal in EUR/USD since this pair is overbought on the H1 timeframe chart
