Wall Street ends week in the red: Aus shares to defy leads and open higher

The Australian share market looks set to open in positive territory despite weak leads from US and European on the back of concerns about the Turkish currency. On Friday the Turkish lira fell by more than 14 per cent and hit a record low against the US dollar rattling global markets. The three major US indexes closed lower as the Dow erased its gains for the month. The Nasdaq snapped an 8 day winning streak. Bank shares led the downward charge with Bank of America, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs all shedding at least 1 per cent. Tech shares also dropped with Facebook, Amazon and Alphabet all lower. The Turkish lira has plummeted for a number of reasons including the central bank's refusal to raise interest rates to support it as well as a recent ramp up in U.S. sanctions. On the commodities front, global oil prices rose on Friday as U.S. sanctions against Iran looked set to tighten supply while gold prices stabilized, with the crisis engulfing Turkey's lira boosting the US dollar. Iron Ore fell by around US65 cents this morning the futures for iron ore are suggesting a 0.9% fall. The Australian dollar dropped more than a cent over the weekend to levels last seen in early 2017 following concerns about the Turkish currency. US economic news: Both headline and core inflation rose by 0.2 per cent in July as expected. Economists say the steady increase in inflation pressures keeps the Federal Reserve on track to gradually raise interest rates. Hourly and weekly earnings decreased 0.2 per cent over the one month period and increased only fractionally on the same time last year. Local economic news: On Monday the Reserve Bank releases the estimates of credit and debit card lending for June, on Tuesday the NAB Business survey is due, on Wednesday all eyes will be on the Wage price index. An increase in the minimum wage and new Enterprise Bargaining Agreements are expected to push wages up by around 0.6 per cent during the quarter. Also out on Wednesday the Westpac and ...
