Good morning, Trust that you’ve had a nice weekend… “A pinch and a punch for the first of the month”… yes, it is June 1… So we all know what happened in May.. Let’s put it behind us now and have a great month together. So what happened on Friday night? US Stocks fell (Dow Jones -121 points), as Gross Domestic Product (GDP), came in lower than expected (-0.7% for the quarter). Why? Once again, the “bad weather” was to blame and economists are forecasting a much stronger GDP figure for this quarter… Remember one thing.. GDP is a “backward looking indicator”, so putting too much emphasis on the “Real Growth” is not 100% accurate… so what's on today? Australia performance of manufacturing, monthly home prices, monthly inflation gauge, March quarter business indicators, building approvals for April; China official PMI; US ISM manufacturing index, construction spending. The SPI is pointing to a 17 point fall on open…
