 Updates with Tokyo and Hong Kong figures.

    EQUITIES
    NEW YORK - The Dow and the S&P 500 advanced modestly on
Friday, though another sell-off in Apple depressed technology
shares and kept the Nasdaq negative, overshadowing a
better-than-expected jobs report.
    The Dow Jones industrial average gained 81.09 points,
or 0.62 percent, to 13,155.13 at the close. The Standard &
Poor's 500 Index rose 4.13 points, or 0.29 percent, to

    LONDON - Britain's top share index closed a touch higher on
Friday, helped by a robust U.S. jobs report, although weak
consumer confidence data from the world's biggest economy and a
grim UK economic outlook knocked sentiment.
    The FTSE 100 closed up 12.98 points, or 0.2 percent,
at 5,914.40, having hit a high of 5,923.11 after data showed
U.S. non-farm employment increased by a better-than-expected
146,000 jobs last month.

    TOKYO - Japan's Nikkei share average hit a seven-month high
on Monday, buoyed by a jump in Chinese November factory output
and a better-than-expected U.S. jobs report, although
profit-taking in some exporters capped gains. 
    The Nikkei added 0.3 percent to 9,550.99 after
trading as high as 9,584.46, its best level since late April.

banking and resources stocks.

22,377.56, its highest since August last year. The China
Enterprises index was indicated to open up 0.9 percent.

    FOREIGN EXCHANGE 
    TOKYO - The euro flirted with two-week lows against the
dollar on Monday after Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti
offered to resign, raising political uncertainty over who will
lead the euro zone's third-biggest economy. 
   The euro fell as much as about 0.3 percent to $1.2880,
near a two-week trough of $1.2876 set Friday. It last stood at
$1.2908, down about 0.2 percent from late U.S. levels,
with focus now on the Italian bond market in reaction to the
news.

    TREASURIES 
    NEW YORK - U.S. Treasuries fell on Friday after
stronger-than-expected U.S. job growth pushed investors into
riskier assets at the expense of safe-haven U.S. government
debt.
    Benchmark 10-year notes fell 12/32 in price to
yield 1.63 percent, up from 1.59 percent late on Thursday. 
    Thirty-year bonds fell 29/32 in price, their
yields rising to 2.82 percent from 2.77 percent.

    COMMODITIES 
    GOLD
    Singapore - Gold was steady on Monday above $1,700 an ounce,
as a drop in the U.S. unemployment rate did little to dampen the
outlook for easy monetary policy, which has supported sentiment
in bullion. 
    Fresh worries over the euro zone also remain supportive for 
gold.     
    Spot gold was little changed at $1,704.31 an ounce by
0038 GMT, after falling 0.6 percent in the past week.

    BASE METALS
    SINGAPORE - London copper rose on Monday after data showed
China's economic growth picked up to eight month highs in
November, but lingering worries that the euro zone may return to
recession next year dragged on the euro and kept a lid on gains.
 
    Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange rose
0.12 percent to $8,044.75 a tonne by 0135 GMT, extending small
gains from the previous session when it logged a fourth week of
gains in a row. Prices are not far away from a two-and-a-half
month peak of $8,095.75 a tonne hit Dec. 5.

    OIL
    NEW YORK - Oil prices were little changed on Friday after
data showing U.S. job growth offset statements by U.S.
Republican lawmaker John Boehner indicating a deadlock in talks
to avert a U.S. budget crisis.
    London-traded Brent crude settled 1 cent lower on
the day at $107.02 per barrel, bringing weekly losses for the
global benchmark crude to nearly 4 percent. U.S. crude 
settled down 33 cents at $85.93. Both benchmarks had traded in
positive territory earlier on Friday.
