It is the RBA rate cut decision and provided they do cut (which we believe they will), will send a lot of SMSF cash into high dividend stocks, driving our market higher…. Now…. Interestingly in the US, lower crude oil prices and higher USD are really starting to “take their toll” on Earnings……..

The SPI is pointing to a 18 point rise this morning.
