The USD fell through the cracks since March, when the coronavirus pandemic broke out int Europe and the US. The US economy took a major hit, as did most major economies around the globe. But it started recovering in May after the reopening and has been picking up pace since then.
The Eurozone economy is showing signs of slowing down considerably while the US is still picking up speed, as we mentioned, but the situation is still cautious with protests and everything going on. Philadelphia FED non-manufacturing report was released earlier, showing exactly that.
