EMERGING MARKETS-Brazil's real steady, Mexico peso drops amid uncertainty

    Nov 13 (Reuters) - Brazil's real was steady on Tuesday
against a weaker U.S. dollar, while the Mexican peso extended
losses from the last session amid uncertainty surrounding the
incoming government's policies.
     The real edged lower, while stocks in Sao Paulo
 fell as a decline in oil prices hit energy stocks.
 
    Mexico's peso weakened and hit its lowest in a week
and a half.
    The currency and Mexican stocks had declined in the previous
session on investor worries over the policy proposals of
incoming president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's administration.
