Local market fell on the open on weaker commodities before recovering and then running into bank tax rumours taking it down again. Commodities remain weak…China hasn’t turned the corner…value has returned to the sector but the momentum remains weak. Banks have moved from reporting to ex div period…not much growth…potential budget tax surprise gave the market a reason to bash them.
