EMERGING MARKETS-Argentina's Merval leads gains on high interest rates, oil prices

    SAO PAULO, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Argentina's peso currency and
Merval stock index registered solid gains on Wednesday after the
nation's central bank held its benchmark interest rate and crude
prices buoyed the nation's commodities-heavy equities market.
    On Tuesday evening, Argentina's central bank held its
benchmark rate at 28.75 percent in order to fend of inflation
that remains stubbornly high. 
    That sent Argentina's peso up 0.22 percent
and helped lift its main stock index more than 1
percent, aided by financial stocks that stand to gain from high
interest rates.
    Argentine gas and energy distribution companies also
registered strong gains as global crude increased amid supply
disruptions in North America.
    Brazil's Bovespa index was roughly steady, as
President Michel Temer continued to negotiate with allies to
bring about a pension reform seen as key to shoring up the
country's fiscal health.
    Those light gains came as buying slowed slightly, following
three straight bull sessions, in which the Bovespa accumulated a
rise of 5.3 percent.
    Chile's IPSA blue-chip index was the big loser among
Latin America's equity markets, falling over 0.5 percent, as the
strong performance of the nation's left in first round elections
over the weekend continues to spook
markets.
