Fresh Start as Shares Climb

New Year, New Hope? There are so many clichés at the start of a New Year about fresh starts and new ideas, but there really does seem to be some optimism surrounding financial markets at the start of the working week this 2010...

Share indices, manufacturing, commodities - trading charts showed they were all up on Monday, and not just in particular parts of the world. No, there was good news in the UK, the US, mainland Europe and in Asia!

It is not just Gold that is enjoying an upward trend in the past months - copper, its less glamurous cousin on the precious metals list, is also enjoying a boost. Keep an eye on that, prospective commodity retail traders!

So - does the year ahead show signs of better economic health for nations around the world, or is this just typical for early trade each new year?
