Sunset Strip | Aussie market followed the global lead up before China worries brought it back to almost flat
Sunset Strip | Aussie market followed the global lead up before China worries brought it back to almost flat. China market is down over 6% on property price worries and margin lending being reigned in. Market volume was just below average while markets were setting themselves for night with Euro markets running on ECB QE hope and US being shut for MLK Jnr national holiday. The commodities and our views (1) Gold - TAKE PROFIT (2) Iron Ore - HOLD (3) Oil - SELL (4) Copper - HOLD. The jobs data that came out last week struggled to make any sense. If we are creating some 40,000 jobs with our population size, then we are creating nearly twice as many jobs as US when adjusted for population. If that is the case, our economy should be flying, but alas we are not in such economy. The negative sentiments likely to last till ECB comes out with QE details at the end of the week....till then let's ride the bumpy ride. (VIEW LINK)
