Market Best Performer Worst Performer Comments
Forex USDCAD NZDJPY Dollar/Yen had a bout of profit taking but has since been bid back to its opening levels while the Euro remains content to dither about in a fairly tight range above key support at 1.2820 as traders wait for the proverbial "other shoe" to drop. Commodity currencies tumbled led by antipodeans(NZD, AUD) after a survey revealed that their major trading partner, China, continues to project weak growth prospects. Factor in Fonterra, the world's largest dairy exporter, slashing payouts to farmers and the market had no other recourse but to sell Kiwi.
Equity ASX 200 FTSE 100  The US government's pledge to crack down on tax-inversion takeovers and escalation of Syrian air strikes led to decline in most global stock indices with British stocks getting hit the hardest. 
Commodity  US Crude Oil (WTI)  Heating Oil Crude oil price was supported by the launch of air strikes in Syria, probably on fears of supply being restricted.
