Global Market

Asian shares are trading mixed on Friday (December 20, 2013), though investors were reassessing the Federal Reserve’s policy outlook following its decision this week to start tapering stimulus, with a more circumspect session on Wall Street overnight.

US stocks finished mostly flat on Thursday (December 19, 2013) as investors paused after a rally in the previous session, though the Dow closed at its second record high in a row.

European shares posted their biggest one-day gain in three months on Thursday (December 19, 2013) after the US Federal Reserve unveiled plans to phase out its stimulus plan more gently than many had expected in the face of a stronger economy.
