Global Market

Asian markets were off to a nervous start on Thursday (December 05, 2013) as never- ending speculation about the fate of US stimulus lifted bond yields, while Japanese shares tried to find their footing after taking a spill.

US stocks declined on Wednesday (December 04, 2013), with the S&P 500 off for a fourth straight session as investors worried that the market’s rally to record levels was not justified, given uncertainty over when the Federal Reserve will start to slow its stimulus.

European shares fell for a third consecutive session on Wednesday (December 04, 2013) in response to evidence of growing momentum in the US economic recovery that could mean a scaling-back of stimulus by the Federal Reserve.
