|Data for week commencing 22 May|
This was an odd week when I actually admitted on TV and in my Thursday Switzer Daily piece that I was a tad negative! Rudi Filapek Vandyke, the founder of FN Arena, wanted to note the day, time and place when I said this on The Final Count. I did quickly add, however, that it wouldn’t last for all that long - maybe until August earnings or until Donald Trump gets his tax plans passed.
However, ironically and you might have missed this, our market actually went up this week.
The S&P/ASX 200 gave up 0.65% on Friday but ending at 5751.7 meant we put on 0.4%, which surprised someone like me, who watches the market like my black lab used to watch a sausage on a BBQ.
