Global markets were reacting on Monday to developments in Europe - Spain's opposition, the Popular Party (PP), led by Mariano Rajoy, won an absolute majority in Sunday's parliamentary elections with 63% of the votes.

In other global matters, the bipartisan US Congressional supercommittee, which proposed cutting $1.2 trillion from the deficit over ten years together with tax hikes, was focusing on how to announce its failure to reach a deal.
