The euro fell against its major counterparts in the European session on Monday, ahead of the European Central Bank's interest rate decision on Thursday.

The ECB is expected to maintain its monetary policy unchanged at the first policy meeting of the year.

Investors await President Christine Lagarde's press conference for more clues on the timing of interest rate cuts.

In an interview with Bloomberg television at Davos last week, Lagarde indicated that the ECB is likely to implement interest rate cuts in the summer.
