    FOREIGN EXCHANGE

year high of 90.25 on Monday. Since Dec. 4, the dollar has

    GOLD

little impact.

    BASE METALS
    SINGAPORE- London copper climbed on Tuesday on growing
confidence in the strength of China's economic recovery ahead of
an early gauge of manufacturing activity this week, while
expected easing from the Bank of Japan also whet investor
appetite for risk. 
    Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange 
rallied 0.33 percent to $8,081.25 a tonne by 0107 GMT, after
closing the last session little changed. Prices have struggled
to find momentum since hitting a 2-1/2-month high near $8,250 a
tonne in early January.

    OIL
    LONDON - Brent crude oil slipped below $112 on Monday,
ending a three-day rally as economic worries and concerns about
oversupply offset fears of unrest in North Africa. 
    Brent futures for March slipped 39 cents to $111.50
per barrel by 1506 GMT. U.S. crude shed 40 cents to
$95.16 per barrel after touching a four-month high last week.
