Article preview: In our latest monthly investment update for December 2019, we take a look at how the global investment markets, economy and commodities are performing. The FTSE 100 index of leading UK company shares closed at the end of November at 7,346.53 points, rising by 98.2 points or 1.35% during the month. With the UK nervously awaiting the General Election this month, investor sentiment appears closely correlated to polling figures. UK shares dipped in value at the end of the month, with the new poll showing the Conservative Party lead over the Labour Party had narrowed slightly. According to the Panelbase survey, the Conservatives hold an 8 point lead over Labour, down from 10 points a week earlier.
