Aussie market finished slightly in the black after flip flopping all day. The commodities were stable overnight, but have started to show weakness as Chinese markets are down 3%. AUDUSD is now below 74 cents and RBA data points to more rate cuts coming. The economy is weak despite the backward data showing stability. Fiscal policy setting shows no catalyst for recovery in the next three years. The payroll data tonight in the US will be the key for the next week in terms of giving clarity on US Fed move in June.
