EUR/USD is witnessing little action with Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris taking the stage for the only vice-presidential debate of 2020 soon before press time. 

So far, Pence and Harris have debated the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus crisis, which, according to Harris, has been inept.
