Morning all! Market Recap / Summary:

After yesterday's poor China data (exports, imports slump) we got supportive comments rolled out of China today from the PBOC, the NDRC, and the Ministry of Finance. The comments were nuanced and perhaps not rippingly bullish, but markets took heart nevertheless and ripped yen crosses higher along with stocks.

AUD, EUR, NZD, CAD, GBP all higher against USD and JPY US stock closed lower (DOW -0.36% / S&P -0.53% / NAS -0.94%)
