It’s just over six months since the COVID-19 pandemic was declared and we’re all still unsure about how it will all end. NAB’s Tapas Strickland said we can expect some optimism today as the Oxford University-Astra Zeneca trials resume, and that could help the Aussie dollar gain some ground? But could it also hit tech stocks, who have been enjoying their moment in the sun as home workers have been more reliant on technology. The tech bubble will be tested this week with a significant number of IPOs in the US. On today’s podcast there’s also discussion on the latest inflation numbers in the US ahead of this week’s FOMC meeting, the UK’s delayed recovery, China’s credit growth and Japan’s new Prime Minister. Plus a look ahead to the RBA meeting tomorrow.
