The dollar traded higher versus FX markets on global trade worries and weakness in emerging markets currencies. As Argentina problems top the agenda investors worry that emerging markets problems could spill into other markets and weight on global growth in the coming months. Global equity markets traded lower led by weakness in EU and Asian markets while US markets traded lower in sympathy. Metals traded sharply lower on a stronger dollar and Oil traded higher in the morning then reversed lower to close below 70$ per barrel ahead of the Inventories number tomorrow.
