Robusta: LIFFE had a bit more life than NYC, but that was only noticeable come mid-week when market started to go up. However on Friday the market ran into better origin selling and prices easing trading back to 2056.

Currency: On the FX markets, Sterling lost some ground against the US dollar after the surge in US payrolls saw GBP/USD hit lows of $1.7104. Meanwhile, EUR/USD dipped to a low of $1.3595 before recovering back above the $1.36 level.
