a jump in bank shares and further upbeat data on the labor
market, though sharp gains in oil prices limited the
advance.        	
*Oil surged nearly 5 percent on Thursday to its highest level
since crude's record run in 2008 after a late report out of Iran
of a pipeline fire in top exporter Saudi Arabia. 	
*Global stocks rose on Thursday as investors focused on an
improving U.S. labor market and other data in hopes the rally
would advance further, while crude oil surged on news that
Israel would soon test-fire a ballistic interceptor
missile.         	
*South Korea's benchmark index rose to its highest close in
seven months on Wednesday, tracking overnight gains in Wall
Street as large caps rallied across the board, with sentiment
