    LONDON - Britain's top share index climbed on Tuesday,
boosted by basic resources stocks, with Anglo American AAL.L

year-to-date gains to more than 270 percent and making it the

S&P/ASX 200 benchmark. Australian shares had ended

    FOREIGN EXCHANGE 
    NEW YORK -  The U.S. dollar slipped from a nearly
eight-month high against the euro and a roughly three-month peak
against the yen on Tuesday after comments from Bank of England
(BoE) Governor Mark Carney cast doubt on expectations for more
monetary stimulus in Europe.
   The euro was last up 0.09 percent against the dollar
at $1.0890, recovering from a roughly 0.3 percent loss earlier
in the session that had taken the currency to a nearly
eight-month low of $1.0851.
    The dollar was last flat against the yen at 104.17
yen after hitting a roughly three-month high of 104.87 yen in
morning U.S. trading. The dollar remained up slightly against
the Swiss franc at 0.9943 franc, but off a nearly
eight-month high of 0.9998 touched earlier.

    TREASURIES 
    NEW YORK - U.S. long-dated Treasury yields slipped on
Tuesday following a decline in U.S. consumer confidence this
month, although the outlook on yields remained upbeat as
investors become increasingly convinced the Federal Reserve will
raise interest rates in December.
    In late trading, U.S. 10-year Treasury notes 
were up 1/32 in price, yielding 1.756 percent, down from 1.763
percent late on Monday. Earlier in the session, 10-year yields
hit a one-week peak at 1.788 percent.
    Following the auction, the yield gap between U.S. 2-year and
U.S. 10-year notes narrowed to 89.80 basis points
.

    COMMODITIES

demand rose before India's late-October festival season.

3:07 p.m. EDT (1907 GMT), after rising to $1276.67, the highest

    BASE METALS
    LONDON - Copper prices rose to their highest in more than a
week on Tuesday as the dollar slipped and talk of further fiscal

up 2.1 percent at $4,735 a tonne from an earlier $4,754.5, its
highest since Oct. 13.

percent, at $50.79 a barrel. In post-settlement trade, it got
down to as low as $50.56.
