Indian FX/debt factors to watch - Jan 2

GLOBAL MARKETS ROUNDUP
    * Asian stocks started new year trading with tentative gains
as investors anxiously wait to see if the U.S. Congress can
strike a last-minute compromise and avert the harsh "fiscal
cliff" tax rises and spending cuts that are technically already
in force. 
    * The safe haven dollar fell on Wednesday as the U.S. House
of Representatives seemed to take a step closer to striking a
last-minute deal to avoid triggering a fiscal crunch that could
threaten the global economy. 
    * Brent crude rose on Monday, closing 2012 up for the fourth
straight year after geopolitical threats to production offset
worries about flagging oil demand. 
    * U.S. Treasury debt prices eased on Monday with long,
30-year bonds falling over a point in price as lawmakers in
Washington came closer to reaching an agreement to avert the
"fiscal cliff."
