Johannesburg - Share prices on the JSE were drifting lower on Friday morning on the second last day of the year, ending a fairly dismal year for the local market on a subdued note.

By midmorning on Tuesday the All-share index was 0.32% lower on 50 565 points, while the Top 40 index traded 0.46% softer on 43 774 points.

If the market stays on these levels for the rest of the morning it would mean that the All-share index will end the year only 2.4% higher, while the Top 40 index, with all the big shares on the JSE, will end the year about 1.5% lower.
