The jitters are still evident in the market as we await Wall Street to enter the fray.

In the major currencies space, the dollar is soaring against the commodity currencies with USD/CAD rising from 1.2600 earlier to 1.2685. Meanwhile, AUD/USD has dropped by over 1.5% from 0.7800 to 0.7730.

Update (1230 GMT): US futures back to flat levels again now. It's gut check time.
