Indian FX/debt factors to watch - Dec 24

GLOBAL MARKETS ROUNDUP
    * Asian shares steadied in quiet pre-holiday trade after a
slump late last week, but markets have become more jittery about
the risk of the United States failing to avert a fiscal crisis. 
 
    *  The yen dipped and neared a 20-month low versus the
dollar on Monday after incoming premier Shinzo Abe renewed
pressure on the Bank of Japan to adopt a 2 percent inflation
target. 
    *  Oil prices fell more than 1 percent on Friday, eroding
this week's earlier gains after Republican lawmakers in the
United States withheld support for a proposal to avert the
so-called fiscal cliff. 
    *  U.S. Treasuries gained a safety bid on Friday after House
of Representatives Speaker John Boehner failed to gain support
for a tax plan, hurting stocks on concerns that lawmakers will
be unable to reach a deal to avert the "fiscal cliff."
