* MARKET THEMES FROM FRIDAY - A late rally in stocks turned a weak day into a range bound one, as we moved back into the prior day's range. We're currently retracing much of that rally in Globex trade, reflecting weakness in Asia and falling commodity prices. 10-year Treasury yields have also fallen below 3.6% after getting close to 4% last week. At last week's highs, we saw significant divergences in the new high/low stats, supporting the thesis that we're seeing a topping process. The weakness on Friday was accompanied by particular weakness in oil and raw materials stocks; emerging market stocks continue to also act weak.
