The euro recovered Monday amid hopes for some progress on Greece's debt crisis, but the common currency remained vulnerable to any news from Greece and EU officials comments.
EMU finance ministers began a two-day meeting on Sunday to decide whether to give a E12 billion tranche of emergency loans to Greece. They will also discuss proposals for a second bailout that could be worth some 120 billion euros.
On Friday, leaders of Germany and France held out hopes for the second rescue package after they agreed on how to involve private holders of Greek bonds.
"The EUR will continue to remain dependent on Greece. If news turns ugly ... we could see EUR/CHF extend further below the 1.1950 record low," BNP Paribas analysts say.
Markets are also closely watching the result of a vote of confidence faced by the newly reshuffled Greek cabinet.
The dollar also weakened against the yen. A FOMC meeting on June 21-22 is unlikely to offer any support for the dollar.
The U.S. central bank is expected to hold interest rates near zero for an extended period.
