A bit of backing and filling to finish the week as the Iron Ore battles continue to dominate the headlines..BHP and RIO are on the verge of being called ‘Un-Australian’ as commentators and pollies come out swinging on their ‘dig it til they hurt’ policy…Fortescue once again joined the fray...

Australian Market thoughts for today

Henry Jennings

So close and yet so far…the rally died yesterday as Chinese numbers disappointed…let’s face it when the Asian markets are going gangbusters why bother with the ASX200(Shanghai up another 1.5% yesterday!!!!)…only really for locals at the moment and the theme of yield is still strong in this one Luke..read more...

I agree with Chris...this one is a buy...all the iron ore stocks have been whacked a bit due to china numbers but think its overdone especially when you look at the production numbers coming out of the Pilbara..November iron ore exports were up 24% on the previous year and grew another 8% in December on data released this morning.

On Back in the Saddle well and truly today!!Hope everyone had a good break and although this week will be quiet still it's a good time to start thinking about... -
