The Australian dollar is running riot on highly volatile data today as the Fed easing gale builds:
Dalian iron ore is holding up manfully on more stimulus hopes as Chinese PMIs weakens:
It’s not enough to hold up Big Iron:
Big Gas is down with oil:
Big Gold has an ugly chart with NCM exhibiting four black crows (and yeh, I just made that up):
