The euro turned higher against its major counterparts in the European session on Tuesday, as hopes of a stimulus deal in Washington and news of a coronavirus vaccine lifted European shares. U.S. congressional leaders and officials in President Donald Trump's administration said on Monday they were ready to resume coronavirus aid talks.

President Donald Trump said that he was considering a capital gains tax cut for creating more jobs to revive the stalling economy.

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that the country had granted regulatory approval to the first official coronavirus vaccine developed by the Gamaleya Research Institute and Defence Ministry.
