EUR/USD plummets below 0.9920 post upbeat US ISM/Jobs data justify Fed 75 bps hike.

EUR/USD breaks below parity, extending its losses after hitting on Wednesday a weekly high at 1.0079, but better-than-expected US S&P Global and ISM Manufacturing PMI further cement the case for a Fed’s jumbo 75 bps rate hike in the September meeting.
