Friday. 
    
    * Stocks in major markets are set for a short-term sell-off on Monday after
suspected Islamist militants launched coordinated attacks across Paris that
killed more than 130 people, but few strategists expect a prolonged economic
impact or change in prevailing market directions. 
    
    * Britain will boost its intelligence agency staff by 15 percent and more
than double spending on aviation security to counter the increasing threat from
Islamist militants, Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday. 
    
    * METALS PRICES - London copper slipped to a fresh six-year low on
Monday as markets reopened following attacks in Paris that renewed risk aversion
and lifted the dollar, dragging on a struggling global economic recovery.
 
    
    * OIL PRICES - Crude oil futures rose on Monday as France launched
large-scale air strikes against Islamic State in Syria, but analysts said oil
and other commodities were expected to remain under pressure as oversupply
weighs on prices.
