The euro loses ground with the US dollar on recovery
The common currency opened the day on firm footing, buoyed by brighter market sentiment. Better than expected industrial profits in China boosted hopes of economic recovery during the Asian session, offsetting fears of a second COVID-19 wave. Furthermore, the stronger than expected German inflation has contributed to the euro appreciation.
