In the latest update, Brian reviews events in markets during December.

He discusses:

  • why many world share markets had a fairly weak month, an exception being strong performance by China's market
  • why concern has increased about the struggling eurozone economy, especially Greece
  • how the actions of key central banks remain a key influence on markets, and
  • why Australia's investment environment remains uncertain, despite signs of recovery in the non-mining economy.
