Shares have reverted to a focus on tech in the US with a sharp rise in tech stocks. In fact, almost everything is a reversal on yesterday, with the US dollar weakening, the Aussie dollar strengthening, and bond yields falling. Chinese shares have stopped their decent, perhaps the alleged injection of cash from the government worked, for now. The expectation that the global recovery will be strong was reinforced by revised OECD forecasts and a record high for business confidence in yesterday’s NAB Business Survey. The inflation fixation right now means all eyes will be on the US and China CPI numbers tonight, as well as listening in to see what the RBA’s Philip Lowe has say on rising bond yields.
