The single currency depressed as the resurgence of the coronavirus cases in Europe threatens to derail the Eurozone economic recovery.
Further, a strongly dovish European Central Bank, which on Thursday gave a strong hint that it could boost its emergency bond-buying program at its December policy meeting weighs on the upside.
Focus now on Eurozone's preliminary Consumer Price Index for October along with German GDP due later today for further impetus.
