Holidays in China, the U.S and the U.K over the next 24 hours means payments to these countries will be delayed by a day or so. So please consider this with regards to payments booked Thursday, Friday and over the weekend.
Stocks finished the European/U.S session mostly flat with very small moves seen, the exception was the U.K FTSE which managed to gain around 0.45%. Commodity prices remain under pressure with nickel holding just above the crucial US$9,000 a tonne while iron ore has again dipped below US$60 a tonne. The bitcoin mania of the past week has also subsided with the crypto currency losing around US$500 a unit since last Thursday to be trading back at US$2200.
