Global shares end higher in short session

US stocks posted modest gains today as investors exercised restraint from making big bets ahead of the Christmas Day holiday, with the Dow and S&P 500 once again setting record highs.

The Dow Jones industrial average was up 63.32 points, or 0.39 percent, at 16,357.93. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index was up 5.25 points, or 0.29 percent, at 1,833.24. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 6.51 points, or 0.16 percent, at 4,155.42.

European stocks edged up adding to the best run-in to Christmas since 1999, although trading in the shortened session was thin.

Many centres such as Germany, Switzerland and Italy were already closed for the Christmas break.

At the close, Britain's FTSE 100 index was up 0.4 percent, France's CAC 40 up 0.1 percent, and Spain's IBEX up 0.6 percent.
