   MARKET SNAPSHOTS
    * The S&P 500 slid to its lowest level since late July on
Wednesday, driven by uncertainty over U.S. budget negotiations
and an escalation of violence in the Middle East. 
    * Stock markets retreated on Wednesday and a small bid for
safety helped safe-haven U.S. Treasuries erase some losses as
investors waited for progress in approving aid for Greece and in
averting potential U.S. fiscal constraint in early
2013. 
    * Brent oil prices rose more than 1 percent toward $110 a
barrel on Wednesday, snapping a two-day slide as Israel launched
a major offensive against Palestinian militants in Gaza,
reinforcing concerns about tensions across the Middle East. 
    * Seoul shares snapped a four-session losing streak on
Wednesday buoyed by technology stocks, but gains were capped by
foreign selling amid uncertainty about the looming U.S. "fiscal
cliff".
