EMERGING MARKETS-LatAm currencies down on profit-taking after Macron win

    SAO PAULO, May 8 (Reuters) - Latin American currencies
weakened on Monday, tracking a decline in the euro on
profit-taking following Emmanuel Macron's widely expected
victory in France's presidential elections.
    Macron's overwhelming win on Sunday briefly pushed the euro
 to a six-month peak on investor relief over the defeat of
nationalist Marine Le Pen, who had threatened to take France out
of the European Union.
    The currency soon reversed direction, dragging along assets
from riskier markets. Currencies of Brazil, Mexico
, Chile and Colombia weakened between
0.5 percent and 0.9 percent.
    Lower prices of commodities also weighed on Latin American
assets, with China-listed iron ore futures extending last week's
losses as supply in the country's ports rose to near a 13-year
high.
    Shares of Vale SA, the world's largest iron ore
miner, fell 1.5 percent, subtracting the most points from
Brazil's benchmark Bovespa stock index.
    Still, rising shares of financial firms helped limit the
decline of the index in the wake of higher-than-expected
first-quarter profits by insurance company BB Seguridade
Participações SA.
    BB Seguridade, the insurance unit of Banco do Brasil SA
, underwrote more dental insurance premiums, which
helped to offset lower investment income amid a harsh recession.
