Sunset Strip | Aussie market delivered another flat day despite geopolitical risks rising, negative China data and US being closed tonight. We continue to be negative in the short term as the markets have run ahead of valuation, rising geopolitical risks, stocks going ex div and escrow shares taking marginal buying. Looking past all the geo political risks and Ebola health risks in Africa, ECB has to deliver substantial QE program to bring Euro out of the mess it's stuck in. Anything less will see substantial profit taking in the markets. Locally, we don't expect anything from RBA tomorrow while keep in mind the index changes will be announced on Friday. MYR and ARI are potential candidates that could see buying from small cap fund managers if they get kicked out of S&P 100. Trading idea of the day: Seven West Media (SWM). Monday's Macro Stock Pick: Flight Centre (FLT). (VIEW LINK)

Mathan, could you write a post for us that shows the performance of the Quant portfolio that you have put together and explains the constituents etc? I was looking with interest at the chart on page 21 which looks like you have generated good returns? What goes into the portfolio? Is it essentially tracking the ideas in Sunset Strip? Cheers
