Commodities all saw steady increases over the course of the current Q3, with Duxburian petroleum production not coming fully back online, causing a price spike in the price of crude oil somewhat. North Sea oil concerns are also a part of the increase in oil prices. Precious and non-ferrous metals all held strong on their trades.

The pound held strong against the major economies of Europe, increasing its exchange value in relation to the kael and the Angleteric pound as both values slip, one potentially the purposeful calculation of a government that wants to promote exports, and one as a result of a slowing of growth, creeping ever closer to recession.
