Mexico's FinMin says NAFTA uncertainty hitting peso

MEXICO CITY, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Mexico’s Finance Minister Jose Antonio Meade said on Monday that the peso’s recent depreciation reflects uncertainty about the NAFTA renegotiation process and questions about how quickly the U.S. Federal Reserve will normalize rates.

The peso slipped over 1.0 percent on Monday to its weakest level since May 18.
