The U.S. dollar traded mixed against the most major currencies ahead of the Fed's interest rate decision. Investors expect that the Fed will end its bond-buying program. They are awaiting new signs for further monetary policy in the U.S. The slowdown of the global growth and recent weaker-than-expected U.S. economic data could lead that the Fed will keep its low interest rate for a longer period.
The euro traded mixed against the U.S. dollar in the absence of any major economic reports from the Eurozone.
The British pound traded lower against the U.S. dollar after the weaker-than-expected economic data from the U.K. The number of mortgages approvals in the U.K. fell to 61,267 in September from 64,054 in August.
