The currency managed to keep gains even after the release of a somewhat disappointing macroeconomic report for Germany.

The German GfK Consumer Climate logged a figure of 10.4 for April, down from 10.7 for March. Analysts had expected a small increase to 10.8. It was the first decline of the indicator since the start of the year.

EUR/USD was at 1.1317 as of 10:38 GMT today after opening at 1.1313 and falling to the daily low of 1.1303. Meanwhile, EUR/GBP declined from 0.8573 to 0.8548, pulling back from the daily high of 0.8595.
