   * U.S. stocks advanced modestly on Friday, leaving the S&P

overshadowed growth concerns in China and Europe and let
investors discount the impact of expected U.S. government
spending cuts. 
   * Global equity markets fell and the euro slumped to a
two-month low on Friday as weak economic data from Europe and
China weighed on prices, but Wall Street stocks rebounded on
news of surprisingly strong U.S. manufacturing and consumer
sentiment. 
   * Brent crude prices fell to a six-week low below $110 per
barrel on Friday, erasing all gains so far in 2013 as political
gridlock in Washington was set to trigger automatic U.S. budget
cuts. 
   * South Korean markets were closed on Friday for a public
holiday. Shares hit a near two-month high on Thursday.
