EMERGING MARKETS-Latam currencies up ahead of Trump inauguration

SAO PAULO, Jan 20 (Reuters) - Latin American currencies
strengthened on Friday on a tentative rebound in risk appetite
ahead of the inauguration of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump.
    The Mexican peso strengthened 1 percent but still
hovered near an all-time low touched earlier this month.
    Traders warned of potential volatility later in the day as
Trump delivers his inauguration speech.
    Trump's campaign promises to break with trade accords with
Mexico have hammered the currency over the past months.
    Expectations that lower taxes and heavy government spending
could push U.S. rates higher have also depressed appetite for
high-yielding emerging market assets in general.
    On Friday, rising oil prices also helped lift Latin American
currencies, with the Colombian peso 0.6 percent stronger.
    Crude futures advanced for a second day on bets that a
weekend meeting of the world's top oil producers would
demonstrate compliance to a global output cut deal.
