Updates with Tokyo and Hong Kong figures

    EQUITIES
    NEW YORK -  The S&P 500 suffered its worst day since June on
Tuesday, pulled lower by Caterpillar Inc after it cut
its profit outlook, the latest high-profile company to warn
about profit growth. 
    The Dow Jones industrial average was down 101.37
points, or 0.75 percent, at 13,457.55. The Standard & Poor's 500
Index was down 15.30 points, or 1.05 percent, at
1,441.59, its fourth day of losses. The Nasdaq Composite Index
 was down 43.06 points, or 1.36 percent, at 3,117.73.

    LONDON - Britain's top share index rose on Tuesday, with
energy stocks in the lead, improving on small gains earlier in
the day after U.S. data allayed some concerns over a stalling of
the global economic recovery. 
   At the close, the FTSE 100 index was up 20.87 points
or 0.4 percent at 5,859.71 points, near the session peak, having
broken out of a tight trading range, which had kept it pinned
back close to opening levels for most of the session.

    TOKYO- Japan's Nikkei average shed 1.6 percent to below the
key 9,000-mark on Wednesday as a raft of companies went
ex-dividend, while concerns over whether debt-laden Spain will
seek a bailout also dampened sentiment. About 55 percent of
Topix companies have passed the deadline for buyers of
the stocks to get rights to first-half dividends. 
    The Nikkei dropped 142.37 points to 8,949.17,
hitting a two-week low and breaking below its 25-day moving
average at 8,985.54.

    HONG KONG- Shares were set to open a percent lower on
Wednesday as weak overseas markets and festering eurozone
concerns dented investors' enthusiasm for chasing this month's
rally. 
   The Hang Seng index was seen opening down 1.03 percent
at 20,485.99. The China Enterprises index of top locally
listed mainland firms was indicated to open down 1.1 percent.

    FOREIGN EXCHANGE 
    TOKYO- The yen pushed higher while the euro remained around
one-week lows against the dollar in early Asian trade on
Wednesday, pressured by concern about Spain's hesitancy to
request a bailout even as protests there turned violent.
    The euro fell about 0.1 percent to $1.2897 after
dropping as low as $1.2886 on Tuesday, which was its weakest
since Sept 13. It moved further away from a four-month high of
$1.3173 hit on Sept. 17 on the EBS trading platform.

    TREASURIES 
    NEW YORK - Longer-dated U.S. Treasuries prices rose on
Tuesday as stocks declined, though investors grappled with low
volumes and a lack of new headlines to move yields into a new
trading range.
     Benchmark 10-year notes were last up 8/32 in
price to yield 1.69 percent, down from 1.72 percent late on 
Monday.

    COMMODITIES 
    GOLD
    SINGAPORE - Gold traded little changed on Wednesday, after
drifting down for two straight days as rekindled concerns about
the euro zone's debt crisis weighed on the euro and boosted the
dollar, putting pressure on bullion.  
    Spot gold was little changed at $1,761.29 an ounce by
0044 GMT. U.S. gold inched down 0.1 percent to $1,764.

    BASE METALS
    SHANGHAI - London copper slipped on Wednesday, wiping out
part of the more than 1 percent gain in the prior session, as
concerns over the euro zone debt crisis hampering demand for
industrial metals returned following anti-austerity protests in
Spain. 
    Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange fell
0.9 percent to $8,205 per tonne by 0102 GMT, after rising 1.1
percent in the previous session.

    OIL
    NYMEX crude for November delivery was down 36 cents
at $91.01 a barrel by 0046 GMT, after settling down 56 cents at
$91.37 on Tuesday.  
   The contract fell as far as $90.57 in post-settlement trading
on Tuesday, its lowest since $87.23 hit on Aug. 3.  
   London Brent crude for November delivery dropped 41
cents at $110.04 a barrel, after settling up 64 cents due to
festering tensions over Iran. 
   Brent and U.S. crude futures jumped to four-month peaks on
Sept. 14, the day after the U.S. Federal Reserve launched its
latest monetary stimulus programme.
