Platinum gained $3.30 to $1784, and copper gained 4 cents to about $4.00.

Oil surged 5.5% higher on the view that last week's commodity correction was overdone.

The US Dollar reversed midday gains against major currencies and ended lower on mixed worries over Greece's debt after S&P downgraded their rating to B from BB-. US Treasuries meanwhile were steady to lower on Monday, with investors turning away from bonds in favor of commodities and stocks ahead of the sale of $72 billion of US government debt this week.

The Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P rose on the rebound in commodities.
