The U.S. dollar traded lower against the most major currencies on the further yuan devaluation. China's central bank set Wednesday's daily fixing at 6.3306 per U.S. dollar, down from 6.3231 on Tuesday.

The central bank said on Tuesday that it was a "one-off depreciation".

"Looking at the international and domestic economic situation, currently there is no basis for a sustained depreciation trend for the yuan," the central bank said on Wednesday.

On a yearly basis, Eurozone's industrial production gained 1.2% in June, missing expectations for a 1.5% rise, after a 1.6% increase in May.
