The U.S. dollar is strengthening against other major currencies.

Investors are doubtful about smooth reopening of economies from coronavirus-induced shutdowns. In the U.S., as new infections per day spike to more than 50,000, state governors are slowing the return to business.

As investors scale back their risk appetite, the U.S. dollar - widely regarded as a safe-haven asset - is rising against other major currencies like the euro, British pound, Australian dollar and Canadian dollar.

On an Intraday 30-minute Chart, EUR/USD remains on the downside after retreating from an intraday high of 1.1370 seen yesterday.
