However, after fluctuating in response to the domestic data releases, the euro came under pressure before the weekend due to its negative correlation with the US dollar.
While the US dollar spent much of July sliding, the currency staged a rebound as souring relations between the US and China drove investors back to safe-haven assets.
For EUR investors the focus at the start of this week will be on the latest ZEW economic surveys.

Economists have forecast that the economy contracted by 12.1% in the second quarter of the year, up from a contraction of 3.6% in the first quarter.
Investors will also be focused on the number of coronavirus cases in France, with the infection rate in the country hitting unprecedented highs.
