Will the market be able to build on this on Wednesday? Here are five things to watch:
ASX 200 expected to fall
It looks set to be a difficult day of trade for the Australian share market on Wednesday. According to the latest SPI futures, the ASX 200 is expected to open the day 24 points or 0.35% lower this morning. This follows a poor night of trade on Wall Street which saw the Dow Jones rise slightly but the S&P 500 fall 0.7% and the Nasdaq sink 1.9%. The latter could be bad news for local tech shares, which tend to follow the Nasdaq’s lead.
