The U.S. dollar is steady today as investors await FOMC meeting minutes due 18.00 GMT. Remarks of policymakers help to understand which financial and economic conditions determined opinions of committee members.

The pound little changed ahead of Bank of England interest rate decision. The central bank is unlikely to change its monetary policy in October. BOE Governor Mark Carney said that the bank should get a better understanding of optimal timing of a first rate increase closer to the end of the year. In September 8 out 9 members of the monetary policy committee voted to keep benchmark rate unchanged, although minutes of the meeting said that the time to raise rates is coming. Thus the BOE may raise rates sooner than many market participants expect.

The Australian dollar declined amid comments by Reserve Bank of Australia head of economic research John Simon, who said that low interest rates are not risky, they are appropriate given slow global economic growth. Simon also said that concerns over low rates are overdone. These comments suggest that the RBA will continue cutting rates and the AUD will fall further.

EUR/USD: the pair rose to $1.1260 in Asian trade

USD/JPY: the pair traded within Y119.80-10

GBP/USD: the pair fell to $1.5295
