The direction of the EUR/USD into the close is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the main 50% level at 1.1691.
The Euro has fallen rather hard during the trading session on Thursday to test the 1.17 level, an area that is important based upon recent price action.
A five month recovery of sentiment in the euro zone stalled in October as consumers and the services sector became more downcast about economic prospects with the increase in COVID-19 cases and restrictions, data showed on Thursday. The European Commission's monthly survey showed sentiment in the 19 countries sharing the euro unchanged at 90.9 points this month, beating market expectations of a drop to 89.5 points. Sentiment in industry, retail trade and construction all increased in October.
