The market was lead negative mainly by resources with falling commodities and negative China flash PMI while banks were slightly negative.

ACR got hit on below than expected sales while DSH’s plan to move into whitegoods was not popular and SGH still getting hit by shorters.

The unit investment property market with falling rental yields and rising interest rates may be the first segment of the property market to start feeling the pinch.
