EMERGING MARKETS-Latam currencies strengthen as crude oil prices rebound

By Bruno Federowski
    SAO PAULO, Nov 28 Latin American currencies
strengthened on Monday as crude prices rebounded, supporting
demand for higher-risk assets.
    Oil prices gained 2.5 percent after falling as much as 2
percent ahead of a meeting of major producers on Wednesday.
    Currencies from oil-heavy economies, such as the Colombian
 and Mexican peso, rose sharply.
    The Brazilian real tagged along as investors held off
making risky bets ahead of a central bank meeting and gross
domestic product figures later this week. 
 
    Risk appetite drove other emerging markets higher, with the
South African rand strengthening 2 percent after rating agencies
affirmed the country's investment grade credit rating.
    Brazilian stocks inched up, though gains were
limited by concerns that a political scandal could delay the
country's fiscal adjustment.
    One of Brazilian President Michel Temer's closest aides
resigned on Friday following allegations he pressured the
culture minister to approve a property development plan,
unsettling investors with the prospect of renewed political
turmoil in Latin America's largest economy.
