METALS SHINE: Metals prices rose on signs that Greece's multi-billion dollar bond swap will succeed, raising expectations that global economic growth may improve. Gold, silver and industrial metals all finished higher.

GREECE'S PLAN: Greece wants to lower its massive debt to avoid default. The results are scheduled to be released Friday.

WHAT'S NEXT: Investors will watch Friday for the U.S. Agriculture Department's revised estimates of global supply and demand prospects for wheat, corn, soybeans and other crops.
