The ASX200 closed 0.15% lower yesterday, however, is still tracking 1% higher for the month of November.
Energy stocks led the gains, benefiting from a firmer crude oil price. Utilities advanced nearly 1% and both the Real Estate and Healthcare sectors managed to post small gains. The rest of the market closed in the red, with the Tech sector down the most, as bond yields climbed.
The top stocks of the day included Energy stocks like Beach Energy (ASX:BPT), Santos (ASX:STO) and Woodside Petroleum (ASX:WPL). Lendlease Group (ASX:LLC) rose 3.2%, as the company is in discussions with Google to potentially develop data centres. And leading the declines was TechnologyOne (ASX:TNE). Its share price has continued to slide since the release of its full year results on Tuesday.
The most traded stocks by Bell Direct clients yesterday included AVZ Minerals (ASX:AVZ), Commonwealth Bank (ASX:CBA) and Westpac (ASX:WBC), while both Vanguard’s Australian Shares ETF (ASX:VAS) and International Shares ETF (ASX:VGS) made the top ten.
In the US, the Dow closed slightly lower, while the S&P500 and Nasdaq managed to post gains, as the recent jump in bond yields cooled down.
This morning, the futures are suggesting the Aussie share market will open slightly higher this morning, up 0.12%
