    EUR/USD trims gains ahead of FOMC

    After a brief adventure to session tops around 1.1090, the upside momentum in spot has run out of steam, prompting sellers to step in and fade the rally. The sudden upside in EUR has been propped up by ECB officials talking down the possibility of further easing measures to be implemented by the ECB and likely to be announced at the December meeting.

    Ahead in the session, the FOMC meeting will take centre stage amidst mounting speculations that the Federal Reserve could delay its rate hike, favouring a lift-off in January or March.
