The details are better for the US dollar than the headline. USD/JPY kicked lower but has mostly recovered. and the other moves have faded as well.

Periodically there is a big miss in the numbers. You can see it every year or two on the long term chart. January was unusually strong and there was no reason for it. It's all about seasonal adjustments and the unemployment rate tells a better story than the headline.
