JOHANNESBURG, June 19 (Reuters) – South Africa’s stock
market hit a lifetime high on Tuesday amid hopes of a
coordinated response by the world’s major central banks to
Europe’s worsening debt crisis.
The All-Share index touched a new record of
34,653.88 points, up 0.62 percent on the day, before retreating
slightly to 34,609.36 by 1437 GMT.
