SHANGHAI, Dec. 6 (SMM) -- According to data released last Friday, the US non-farm payroll in November unexpectedly slipped significantly, leading to a weaker US dollar against the euro. Following Ireland, Belgium and Italy came under spotlight, with yields of treasury bond spread between the two countries and Germany setting as new high in a decade. The US payroll data and the European debt crisis both weighed on base metal prices.
