    MARKET SNAPSHOTS
    * U.S. stocks climbed on Monday, rebounding from last week's
losses after Citigroup's earnings and retail sales sharply
exceeded expectations. 
    * Global stocks rose on Monday on upbeat U.S. data and
earnings and on bets Spain was close to asking for a bailout,
but the lack of details on Madrid's next move kept the euro
flat. 
    * Brent crude prices rallied on support from North Sea
production delays and skepticism about an offer from Iran to
negotiate the halting of higher grade uranium enrichment that
put pressure on oil prices during the session. 
    * South Korean shares fell to their lowest level in more
than a month on Monday, dragged down by automakers on
expectations of poor third-quarter earnings to be released later
this month.
