Treasury prices extended losses after the minutes from the Federal Reserve's last policy meeting. The U.S. dollar edged lower after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke emphasized plans to continue ultra-loose policy.

Oil futures edged lower ahead of a weekly government update on US petroleum supplies after a trade group reported a rise in crude and gasoline inventories along with a decline in distillate stockpiles. London BHP up 0.41%. Rio up 1.26%. New York BHP down 0.17%. Rio up 1.42% LME Base metals traded lower.
