S.Korea-Market Factors to watch on Sept 18

SEOUL, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Following is a list of events in
South Korea as well as news stories and press reports that may
influence financial markets.

    * Stocks in the United States and Europe on Monday gave back
some of last week's huge gains as investors began to question
whether recent action by both the European Central Bank and
Federal Reserve would be enough to revive global growth.
    * Oil fell nearly $3 on Monday in a wild session that saw
Brent plunge more than $5 a barrel in a wave of late,
high-volume selling before paring losses as markets sought an
explanation for the sudden crash. 
    * South Korean shares fell on Monday but remained above the
2,000 point level, as momentum from Friday's Fed-inspired rally
slowed without a basic improvement in fundamentals.  
    Following is a summary of local press reports translated by
Reuters. Reuters has not verified the content of these reports
