China's Shanghai Composite climbed to a 1-week high as the rally in crude oil to a 2-1/3 year high boosted Chinese energy stocks. Japan's Nikkei Stock Index soared to a 25-3/4 year high, bolstered by strong corporate quarterly earnings results and by Monday’s rally in USD/JPY to a 7-1/2 month high.

The dollar index (DXY00 +0.36%) is up +0.30% at a 1-week high as an increase in the 10-year T-note yield boosts the dollar's interest rate differentials.

Dec 10-year T-notes on Monday posted a fresh 2-week high and closed higher on carry-over support from a rally in 10-year German bunds to a 1-3/4 month high and on increased safe-haven demand from geopolitical tensions in the Middle East after Saudi Arabia said an attempted missile attack on Riyadh's airport could be an act of war by Iran.


The dollar index (DXY00 +0.36%) this morning is up +0.284 (+0.30%) at a 1-week high. EUR/USD (^EURUSD) is down -0.0042 (-0.36%) at a 3-1/2 month low and USD/JPY (^USDJPY) is up +0.45 (+0.40%).

The dollar index on Monday fell back from a 1-week high and closed lower on increased safe-haven demand for the yen as USD/JPY declined on tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabi after Saudi Arabi said a weekend attempted missile strike at Riyadh's airport could be an act of war by Iran. The dollar was also undercut by the decline in the 10-year T-note yield to a 2-week low, which undercuts the dollar's interest rate differentials.

Dec crude oil and gasoline on Monday closed higher with Dec crude at a 2-1/3 year high.
