Our last full week as we head into the Christmas break and unfortunately difficult news comes out of Sydney. Our thoughts are with all of the hostages and their families at this difficult time. Glad it’s over, but disappointed that we should have to see this in Australia, also very proud of the professionalism shown by our law enforcement officers.
In market news, metal prices are firm amid thin trading and the Australian Dollar seems to have found comfort around the 0.82-0.83 mark. As we head toward the end of the year, we expect trade volumes to continue to decline.
