Australia back in business by July

“Australia back in business by July” is the message from the cabinet meeting yesterday. The government clearly don’t want to be seen to be slow getting the economy going again and have developed a few catch phrases like “A sustainable COVID-19 Safe Economy” which means continuing with social distancing and safe hygiene.

Trade War Irrelevant

SPI down 7 but Dow Futures down another 300. A few strategy points to make this morning. TECHNICALLY One bad day…or a new trend – Friday’s 5% drop at first sight risks being the start of a bigger correction (corrections start fast) although all Friday did was negate the previous two days and whilst one…
