In a context dominated by risk aversion, the USD regained some ground: after having touched 1.2080, the EUR/USD exchange rate fell back towards 1.2030. The empty economic agenda puts the focus on the deterioration in Covid data, especially in India. Japan is adopting emergency measures for the umpteenth time in the main cities as well. The situation in Europe has started to improve very gradually, which will not allow a quick reopening of the economy.
