  • Iron ore prices are in focus with the spot price cracking US$100 a tonne for the first time in 5 years on Friday.
  • With the Aussie dollar just under $US .69c our exporters will be jumping for joy.
  • Post-election euphoria continued on markets with the S&P ASX 200 hitting a 12-year high closing at 6500.1 yesterday. Continuing tension between China and the US and slower global trade growth suggest the excitement will subdue over the next few days.
  • With the election uncertainty out the way and a majority government in power, all eyes are turning to an upswing in the property market. Call me now for a plan to get you moving.
