  MARKET SNAPSHOTS      	
*U.S. stocks mostly dipped on Thursday, but the S&P 500 ended
its worst week this year as growing pressure on Europe's debt
markets revived concerns about the region's financial
stability        	
*Oil rose on Thursday after two straight days of losses, as a
drop in U.S. jobless claims to near four-year lows and fears of
Iran-related supply disruptions spurred a rebound from the
previous session's heavy losses. 	
*The euro hit a three-week low against the dollar and bonds
edged higher on Thursday as Spain's debt burden fueled worries
of further problems for euro zone economies and curbed appetite
for riskier assets.         	
*Seoul shares ended slightly higher on Thursday after sinking to
a near one-month low earlier in the session, initially weighed
by worries over a weak Spanish bond auction and dashed hopes of
additional U.S stimulus, but later rebounding at a key support
level.
