EUR/USD reverses and droops toward 1.1250

FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD changed it course and dropped from 2-week highs at 1.1326 toward 1.1250. The pair still remains above the level it closed yesterday but is lower from where it was before the release of the FOMC minutes.

The minutes from the September meeting showed officials believe the liftoff is close; several FOMC members remained concerned about the low inflation. The next Fed meeting will be October 27/28.
