Latin American Markets Mostly Higher, Led By Financial and Energy Sectors

Latin American Stocks are mostly higher today, supported by gains among financial stocks after Spain's second-largest bank by assets - Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria, S.A. ( BBVA ) - sold about $2 billion of five-year notes for about 24 basis points less than comparible government notes, according to Fox Business News. Energy stocks also are moderately higher, offsetting declines for shares of mining companies.
