Asia

China’s uncertain stock market performance continued on Monday, with the CSI 300 index of large cap shares falling 1.3% to hit a three-month low. Profit-taking towards the end of the year was seen as a strong reason behind the sell-off, as well as ongoing anxiety after state media last week said a brewery firm’s shares were overvalued. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng was also lower.

Japanese equities closed down on Monday but are still hovering around 25-year highs.

Europe

In the UK, the FTSE 100 climbed back from an opening loss to be around 20 points higher at 7428, buoyed by last week’s standout performer, budget airline EasyJet (EZJ). Insurance company Aviva (AV) is higher on talk of a possible share buyback.
