One point, but we’ll take it

The Australian share market managed its eighth straight winning day on Wednesday, but only just; with the S&P/ASX 200 eking out a gain of 1.2 points, to 7123.2.

Energy shares sank on Monday, with Woodside among the worst hit, after the lower house passed an emission reduction plan in a deal with the Greens.

  • Crisis fears cause jittery market

    The cauterising of the Credit Suisse wound over the weekend, as emergency talks in Europe ended with UBS buying its embattled rival in a $4.5 billion acquisition – half the value Credit Suisse had at the end of last week – calmed markets to some degree on Monday, but the benchmark S&P/ASX200 index still finished…

    US Bank woes hurt market despite deposit news

    The failure of two major banks in the United States on Friday continued to roil markets, with the US indices – and bond yields – falling over the weekend, and the inevitable follow-on effect saw the Australian market under pressure, too.

    Lowe might not go as high

    While the Reserve Bank of Australia, as expected, lifted the country’s official cash rate by 25 basis points to 3.6 per cent, in the tenth consecutive hike, the semantics of Governor Philip Lowe’s policy statement galvanised the market. A slight change of wording in the crucial final paragraph, which discarded a specific reference to “further…
