    The U.S. dollar stepped down from a seven-month high against other major currencies amid profit taking. Earlier the greenback rose significantly against the euro and the yen after the minutes of the Fed's meeting showed some policy makers were concerned that a signal of a probability of higher rates in December would be exaggerated. However most policy makers believe that the U.S. economy will improve by December meeting and will be able to withstand a rate hike.

    The yen rose against the greenback on positive data. For the first time in six months Japanese trade balance has recovered from a deficit in October. Exports exceeded imports by ¥111.5 billion. Japanese exports declined by 2.1% in October despite a weaker yen. However imports fell by 13.4%. Exports to China fell by 3.6% marking the third month of declines in a row. The Bank of Japan's decision to leave its monetary policy unchanged also supported the yen.
