The Dollar is the focus for many futures markets today.Yesterday’s warning from Moody’s about a potential downgrade of UK sovereign debt has traders contemplating the same thing happening to the US.For the US, they upheld the US’ AAA rating, but a downgrade could come if the debt trend continues and appears to be irreversible.They said the trend is more important than the level. In addition, Boston Fed President Rosengren said the US recovery may be slow; this weighed on the dollar. The Dollar is a positive factor for many commodity markets.There are no economic reports due today; there’s a cattle on feed out after the close.For the time being, don’t underestimate the effecton commodity prices of the break in the Dollar.
