The overall market sentiments continue to remain subdued amid concerns of slow economic recovery induced by the coronavirus pandemic.
As of this moment, the currency pair is trading at 1.1828 level, up by 0.17%.
Coming on to the previous session, EURUSD dipped to the intra-day low of 1.1803 level as the second wave of coronavirus intensified across Europe.

Besides, the lack of progress on the US fiscal stimulus package after Larry Kudlow stated that talks have stalled added to the dismal mood.
On the macroeconomic front, Germany’s IFO Business Climate data for October contracted to 92.7, missing the market expectation of 93.2, thus further weighing on the single currency. Consequently, the currency pair concluded the session at 1.1808 level, down by 0.41%.
