For the first time this week the Australian All Ords, Hang Seng and the Nikkei have all finished the day in positive territory. I mentioned earlier that this could flow through to a renewed appetite for the GBP, AUD and EUR with the GBP likely to strengthen against the EUR also.

  • Australian All Ords +0.85%, +28.70, 3,398. ASX200 +1.05%, +35.70, 3,448. Financial and Industrial sectors lead the way today.
  • Nikkei225 +0.31%, +23.21, 7,557.65. The Communications sector was the only positive today, with Industrials weighing heavily on the market.
  • Hang Seng +0.06%, +7.36, 13,023.36.
