The local market started its session with heavy selling on the open, only to bounce back from 11am to close on its highs at 6568, led by the gold and resource names.

Treasury Wine Estate (TWE) was targeted by a Hong Kong based short seller, trading as low as -5% at one stage, only to close back in black, up 1pt to $16.57 after TWE reaffirmed its FY19 guidance.

As mentioned this morning, AMP reported an underlying profit of $309m, along with a whopping non-cash impairment of $2.35bn (post-tax) and a $650m capital raising set at its floor price of $1.50/share as the recently appointed CEO restructures the business.
