Mexico's peso dips more than 1 pct ahead of Fed minutes
MEXICO CITY Aug 21 (Reuters) - Mexico's peso weakened 1.48 percent on Wednesday before paring losses as speculation swirled that U.S. Federal Reserve minutes due out later in the day will reinforce expectations of a pullback in economic stimulus policies next month.
The peso fell to 13.1650 per dollar, before strengthening to 13.156 per greenback, on fears of a tapering in the Fed's bond-buying program, which has supported investor appetite for emerging market assets.
