The euro recovered from its early lows against other major currencies in the European session on Tuesday, as investors awaited cues from U.S. inflation data later in the day and the Fed's monetary policy announcement on Wednesday.

U.S. CPI data for November may show inflation still cooling but staying well above the Fed's 2 percent annual target.

The Federal Reserve is widely expected to hold rates on Wednesday, with the spotlight squarely on the central bank's dot plot and summary economic projections as well as comments from Chair Jerome Powell during his press conference.

In economic news, data from the think tank ZEW showed that Germany's investor confidence strengthened to a nine-month high in December despite the current budget crisis. The ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment rose to 12.8 in December from 9.8 in November. This was the highest score since March and also came in above forecast of 8.8.

Investor confidence in the euro area also strengthened in December, the survey showed. At 23.0 points, the economic sentiment index gained 9.2 points from November.

The European currency traded lower against its major counterparts in the Asian session today.
