Arabica bounced back from early session lows and woes to settle 132.10, -1.90, though the final print was 131.60 leaving tomorrow’s start in a hole. Volume was hefty by all measures, appropriate given the 720 point range. Futures opened the day on the back foot and embarked on a descent with scarcely any arrest before 8:15am EDT.

The DXY gained .75%, and the BRL traded a 5.317 to 5.408 range at the time of writing, with a similar rounded bottom and recovery on the intraday chart.

Option volumes were huge, totaling 17,883 as both the Z 160 C and Z 110 P were boosted above 1500x each via their inclusion in packages. Cert fell 250 bags while pendings rose 1280 bags to 2929.
