MOPEY METALS: Prices for palladium, platinum, silver and other metals fell even though there were signs that the economy is improving. Pending home sales rose, and so did a measure of manufacturing.

LOSING ENERGY: Prices for energy commodities also fell. Benchmark crude, Brent crude, gasoline and heating oil all finished lower.
