Major currencies are mixed with both the € and the ¥ lower, but the BRIC currencies are all higher with the Yuan leading the way. The Real which closed at 3.9682 is valued at 3.9600 on the CME. USDMXN is 19.6281 +0.0066 (+0.03%) while USDCOP is 3,445.00 -0.59 (-0.0171%). Metals are lower today except for copper which is higher in line with equities. Crude and grains are higher as are all the softs.
There has been underlying strength this week for the most part but the market remains generally without direction as it takes the back seat to spread activity. Hopefully we will see some option expiration related action.
