    FXStreet (Córdoba) - USD/CHF made a marginal new 10-month high above 1.0200 following the release of the minutes of the October FOMC meeting.

    USD/CHF spiked to a high of 1.0219, last seen on January when the SNB removed the franc’s cap, but quickly pulled back to previous levels. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.0195, recording a 0.44% gain on the day.

    Minutes of the October FOMC meeting showed that most participants anticipated that the economic conditions “could well be met by the time of the next meeting”. However, members differed in their assessment of the likelihood that incoming information will warrant a rate hike in December, but they agreed that the decision will remain data dependent.
