The benchmark S&P/ ASX200 index rose 12.2 points, or 0.26 per cent, to 4774.6, while the broader All Ordinaries index gained 12.6 points, or 0.26 per cent, to 4789.3. On the Sydney Futures Exchange, the December share price index futures contract was 23 points higher at 4788, on a volume of 19,339 contracts. CMC Markets head of trading James Foulsham said trading was pretty quiet. We had a big sell-off last week and its steadied since then, and its starting to wind down towards the end of the year a little bit, he said. There was not much of a lead from the US. A few stocks are moving around, but overall its generally been pretty low trading volumes. Gold rose to a fresh record price overnight as the US dollar weakened, cementing the precious metals surge over the past year as nervous investors sought safe-haven investments. In the resources sector, global miner BHP Billiton rose 55c to $42.47, and Rio Tinto dipped 3c to $73.51. Woodside Petroleum re versed 44c to $49.36 and Santos put on 13c to $15.15. Among the banks, National Australia Bank eased 12c to $28.68, Westpac improved 19c to $24.46, Commonwealth bank declined 59c to $54.11 and ANZ gained 9c to $22.20. National turnover was 2.51 billion shares worth $5.25b.
