On Friday the ASX200 edged 0.2% higher. Healthcare, Consumer Staples and Materials made the most gains, while the Industrials and Information Technology sectors declined the most.

The most traded stocks by Bell Direct clients on Friday included the BetaShares Gold ETF (ASX:QAU) and Queensland Pacific Metals (ASX:QPM).

In overseas markets, European markets closed lower as Austria re-enters a national lockdown. US equities also struggled on Friday; however tech share posted a winning week. Global markets were weighed down by heightened inflation and COVID-19 concerns.

Today, following European & US markets, the SPI futures are suggesting the ASX200 will fall 0.6% at the open.
