    FOREIGN EXCHANGE 
    SYDNEY - The yen started the new week under pressure, with

99.83 yen, having risen as high as 99.90 in early Asian

    TREASURIES 
    NEW YORK - U.S. Treasuries prices edged down on Friday after
a two-day rally left yields near four-month lows and investors
turned to battered stocks, with many focused on the hunt for a
bombing suspect in Boston that nearly emptied that city's
financial district.
    Thirty-year bonds fell 12/32 in price to yield
2.883 percent, from 2.8630 percent late on Thursday.

    COMMODITIES 
    GOLD
    SINGAPORE - Gold jumped more than 1 percent on Monday after
a rebound above $1,400 ignited technical buying, but sentiment
was shaky as steady outflows from exchange-traded funds trimmed
holdings to their lowest in three years. 
    Gold added $13.91 an ounce to $1,417.76 by 0212 GMT
after rising to as high as $1,421, still below Friday's
session-high of around $1,424.

    BASE METALS
    SINGAPORE - London copper retreated towards 18-month lows
below $7,000 a tonne on Monday, as sluggish global growth
tempers industrial demand and erodes investor appetite for
metals.
    Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange fell
by 0.93 percent to $6,935 a tonne by 0123 GMT, extending losses
from the previous session.

0223 GMT, bouncing from the lowest level since July 2012 on
Wednesday. U.S. crude for June delivery was up 29 cents
