Key Quotes



"The heavier tone of the yen, the firmer Australian and New Zealand dollars are consistent with this, and we note that the Russian ruble is up about 0.3% today. It is still off roughly 2.3% on the week. Russian stocks have shed another 1.4% today to bring the loss on the week to 5.2%, which puts MICEX back at late May levels."
