Last month‚ the all share index gained more than 2%‚ led by industrials.

“The backdrop for commodity-based stocks‚ however‚ remains positive following the uptick in the Chinese manufacturing data although we still need to see a firmer trend‚” said Devin Shutte‚ a trader at stockbrokerage‚ Newstrading.

China’s official purchasing managers index rose to a seven-month high of 50.6 in November‚ up from 50.2 in October.
