The volatility continued this week - both on the Australian and overseas markets.
In Australia, Tuesday was a significant negative day, driven by resource companies. The preceding US market session provided a poor lead in, driven by weak Chinese industrial profit data and a Glencore share price collapse (based on debt concerns).
However, for the week-to-date, the Australian market has managed to achieve a slight gain (+0.3%), with the remaining trading days positive. The US market finished slightly down for the week-to-date; down 0.6%.
