    FXStreet (Córdoba) - EUR/USD remained barely unchanged following the release of better-than-expected US trade data as investors await the Federal Reserve policy decision later on the day.

    US trade deficit shrunk to $58.63 billion in September from $67.19 billion the previous month and below the $64.90 billion expected. However, dollar failed to benefit from data, with EUR/USD still trading near daily highs around 1.1070, up 0.19% on the day.

    The Federal Reserve will announce its monetary policy decision at 18GMT. Although most analysts still expect a rate hike in December, Fed wording will be closely scrutinized.
