News Summary: Precious metals jump on dollar slump
By Steve Rothwell
PALLADIUM: The biggest beneficiary of the move was palladium. The metal gained $16.30, or 2.5 percent, to $1,617.10 an ounce.
THE BEANS FROM BRAZIL: Coffee was the day's loser, falling 0.3 percent. Expectations of a bumper crop to come in Brazil, the world's largest producer of coffee beans, pushed prices lower.
