Sunset Strip (Afternoon Report) - Aussie market started negative with Iron ore falling and then recovered to close flat on the back of banks. China property bubble worries and Iron Ore dropping to $97.5 remains the risk for further resource sector pain. We continue to worry about consumer sentiment on the back of local unemployment tidal wave, rising cost of living pressures and budget uncertainties while global risks continue to rise in China and Europe with markets hoping for stimulus from both regions. Equities is the only game in town and Yield is the only thematic that needs attention given the low interest rate environment well into 2015.
