EMERGING MARKETS-LatAm FX down as U.S. economic data overshadows wages

    By Bruno Federowski
    SAO PAULO, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Latin American currencies
weakened on Friday after upbeat data  on U.S. services and
manufacturing overshadowed tepid wage growth.
    U.S. services activity rose at the fastest pace since August
2005 in October, according to the ISM report on the nation's
non-manufacturing sector, easily outpacing analysts'
expectations.
    Along with data showing rising factory orders, the report
fueled hopes of increasing strength in the U.S. economy that
could drive the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates at a
faster-than-expected pace in coming months.
    Higher U.S. rates would likely dampen demand for emerging
market currencies, which offer higher yields. Still, some
traders remained concerned over the U.S. labor market's strength
after a series of mixed reports.
    Earlier on Friday, data showed a sharp retreat in annual
U.S. wage gains and a surge in the number of people dropping out
of the work force in October, casting a doubt over the labor
market.
    Currencies from Brazil, Mexico, Chile
 and Colombia weakened between 1 percent and 1.6
percent. 
    Brazil's benchmark Bovespa stock index slipped 0.8 
percent, with shares of discount retailer Lojas Americanas SA
 leading losses in the wake of weaker-then-expected
quarterly results.
