Last week, indices around the globe showed a more positive trend with only a few countries showing a negative trend.

South Korea sees a significant jump as its economy continues to look strong and is a major player in the non-BRIC growth economies. South Africa also continued with strong growth and is aligned with South Korea as a high growth emerging economy outside the BRIC club.

The balance of the other national economies were flat or modestly up as we rounded out the end of the year.

Spain continues to be a concern and it will likely take some time to work through the national debt concerns.

We will see if the upward trend continues early in 2011 -- this data can regularly be reviewed at the 360 Degree Market View.
