GLOBAL MARKETS ROUNDUP
    *  Asian shares steadied on Friday, tracking global equities
higher after upbeat U.S. labour market data, with investors
turning their attention toward corporate earnings to assess the
outlook for growth. 
    *  The dollar traded near a four-year high against the yen
and kept an upper hand against the euro on Friday after an
unexpectedly big slide in U.S. jobless claims alleviated some
concerns about a slowdown in the world's biggest economy. 
    *  Oil prices rose as much as $2 on Thursday as new reports
over Syria's possible use of chemical weapons stirred concerns
over stability in the Gulf region, while a wider rally in
commodity and equity markets fuelled buying. 
    * U.S. Treasuries prices slipped on Thursday, with benchmark
yields lingering close to their four-plus month lows, as
better-than-expected labour market data and gains in the stock
market nicked the safe haven bid in bonds.
