While the MonetDB SQL bulk loader ("COPY INTO table FROM file") does (by now; not sure since when; possibly only after Jan2014 release, but possibly still in Jan2014 branch) ignore whitespaces around integer and floating-point numbers (of all supported sizes), it does not (yet) ignore whitespaces around fixed-point (decimal) numbers.
