EMERGING MARKETS-Latam stocks, currencies seesaw on higher oil, Fed jitters

(Updates with final prices)
    By Bruno Federowski
    SAO PAULO, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Most Latin American stocks and
currencies seesawed on Tuesday as investors reacted to local
issues as well as rising oil prices and uncertainty over U.S.
monetary policy.
    Crude oil prices drifted, rising early to hit four-month
highs on optimism about an OPEC deal to freeze output levels,
then fading as a surging dollar weighed on greenback-denominated
    The Mexican peso closed down 0.15 percent against
the dollar, after strengthening earlier in the day.
    The Colombian peso weakened 1.64 percent, extending
losses after voters rejected a peace deal with Marxist FARC
rebels, and the Brazilian real fell 1.54 percent.
    Volatility has spiked in emerging markets over the last few
months as traders seek to decipher the U.S. Federal Reserve's
strategy for increasing interest rates.
    Contradictory comments by Fed officials have boosted
uncertainty over when rates will rise for only the second time
in a decade.
    Richmond Fed President Jeffrey Lacker said he would have
voted in favor of an interest rate hike at the Fed's September
policy meeting had he been able to vote, reflecting the growing
pressure on Fed Chair Janet Yellen to raise rates. 
    Brazil's benchmark Bovespa stock index seesawed.
Shares of Itaúsa Investimentos Itaú SA weighed on the
index on a report that it could make an offer for the fuel
distribution unit of state-controlled oil company Petróleo
Brasileiro SA. But other financial shares rose,
providing some support.
