GLOBAL MARKETS ROUNDUP
    *  The yen hit its lowest level in more than two years on
Friday as expectations of drastic monetary easing intensify,
underpinning Japanese equities, while Asian shares were capped
by worries the United States may run out of time to avoid a
fiscal crunch. 
    *  The yen's spiral continued on Friday, with the Japanese
currency  registering a more than two-year low against the
dollar and a 17-month nadir versus the euro in early Asian
trading on expectations of more stimulus steps from the
country's new government. 
    *  Oil prices eased in choppy trading on Thursday, buffeted
by unresolved U.S. budget talks and the possibility that looming
tax increases and spending cuts could push the top oil-consuming
economy into recession. 
    *  U.S. Treasury debt prices rose on Thursday on safe-haven
buying after the Senate majority leader hinted a federal budget
deal was unlikely before a year-end deadline, raising chances of
a burdensome package of tax hikes and spending cuts next
year.
