The Aussie share market is likely to pull back 0.4% – which could rub out half of yesterday’s gain of 0.9%.

Commodity stocks are expected to charge again today, while tech stocks will likely move to a lower-gear following moves in overseas markets.

What to watch today:

  • The Iron Ore price hit a brand new 9.5-year high – US$175.50 – a level not seen since September 2011 as China demand remains strong and doubts about Brazilian shipments from Vale, the world’s top producer, linger on.
  • Copper rose 1.6%; the Coffee price hit a 2.5 year high and Oil holds steady at US$61.64.
  • Appen (ASX:APX) upgraded its outlook for FY21 expecting earnings to lift up to 28%.

  • Other companies reporting: Sydney Airport (ASX:SYD), WiseTech Global (ASX:WTC), Healius (ASX:HLS), Viva Energy (ASX:VEA), Helloworld (ASX:HLO).
