    Credit Suisse's departure highlights that, for most banks, the debate about whether or not to extend banking services to commodities markets is nuanced.

    Re: What does NUANCED mean here:

    Nuances are small or subtle differences. So if the debate is nuanced it takes into account these small differences. If the debate is good vs bad, it probably isn't nuanced, but a debate about the nature of evil might be. Extending banking services to the commodities market is, presumably, a complex issue with many different points of view, some of which overlap to a certain extent.
