It's a phenomenon in markets we call 'buy the rumour, sell the fact' where in this case investors bought Dollars in the build up to the minutes and with nothing likely to affect the Fed until December's NonFarm Payroll release, sold them after the 'fact' of FOMC minutes in line with consensus expectations of a December interest rate lift-off.”
