Market Update – 26th February 2018 – Equities & Commodities Finish Last Week In Positive Territory

Not much happened over the weekend in terms of economic data releases however commodities and stocks performed pretty well Friday evening which suggests markets and the Aussie dollar open today in a reasonably buoyant fashion. The Spot Iron Ore price is also holding up nicely and ever so slowly edging towards US$80 a tonne which is certainly bullish for the AUD and the commodities sector in general.

Again its a very quiet start to the week with no economic data released today or overnight. The first bit of local data is released Wednesday where we will see whether there has been any growth in Private Sector Credit in Australia.
