    SAO PAULO, Dec 29 (Reuters) - Latin American currencies were
flat or slightly higher on Tuesday as oil prices steadied near
11-year lows, curbing a recent bout of risk aversion.
    A rebound in crude prices , which have been
pressured by concerns over global oversupply, helped bolster
demand for commodity-linked currencies such as the Mexican peso
, amid light trading ahead of the New Year's holiday.
