Data for week commencing 13 May 2019

As one headwind changes with the arrival of election day, I’m hoping that if we do see a PM Bill Shorten tonight that his acceptance speech will be as well-received as Donald Trump’s was in November 2016, which set the market alight. But heck, that’s a Christmas wish of an optimist.

Of course, if Scott Morrison does a Steven Bradbury and takes out the big prize, I bet stocks would soar on Monday. But they’d still have to deal with the spectre of the most unusual US President ever - and he’s up against a lot of competition!
