EMERGING MARKETS-LatAm stocks, currencies seesaw on thin trading volumes

    By Bruno Federowski
    SAO PAULO, May 29 Latin American stocks and
currencies seesawed on Monday on thin trading volumes, with
several major foreign markets closed due to local holidays.
    Holidays in the United States, China and the United Kingdom
kept a lid on liquidity, driving many investors to remain on the
sidelines.
    In Brazil, traders also erred on the side of caution ahead
of a key central bank decision after market close on Wednesday
and the release of first-quarter gross domestic product (GDP)
figures on Thursday.
    A mounting political scandal threatening to oust President
Michel Temer has led many to dial back bets on a sharp 125
basis-point interest rate cut this week, with rate futures
suggesting a 100 basis-point instead.
    Investors fear the crisis could delay the implementation of
ambitious pension and labor market reforms seen as key to plug a
growing budget gap.
    The Brazilian real slipped 0.1 percent, while the
benchmark Bovespa stock index fell 0.7 percent. 
    Still, shares of meatpacker JBS SA rose 2.8
percent after brothers Joesley and Wesley Batista, who own the
company and are embroiled in the corruption scandal, resigned
from senior posts.
