GLOBAL MARKETS ROUNDUP
    * Asian shares inched lower on Thursday, taking cues from an
overnight drop in U.S. and European equities on renewed concerns
about global growth, which also weighed on commodities.
 
    * The euro nursed heavy losses early in Asia on Thursday,
having suffered its biggest one-day fall in nearly a year on
talk of more easing by the European Central Bank, while
commodity currencies remained under pressure as risk sentiment
took a further dive. 
    * Brent crude futures slipped below $97 a barrel on Thursday
for the first time since July, as worries about global oil
demand persisted amid rising U.S. fuel supplies and a recent
slew of weaker-than-expected economic data. 
    * Prices of U.S. Treasuries rose on Wednesday as sinking
stock prices spooked investors into scooping up safe-haven
government debt.
