Here in the states, all major averages posted gains. The Industrials added 45 points while the Transports rose 0.36%. The Nasdaq was the outperformer of the day, up 1.01%, while the S&P 500 climbed 0.58%.

 

The dollar index moved sharply lower today, down 0.69%, though it remains above the 100 level (100.17). Treasuries also fell as the yield on the 10-year note rose to 2.4%.
