Overseas Market Report

US sharemarkets fell on Monday on trade concerns after President Trump restored tariffs on metal imports from Brazil and Argentina. Weaker US manufacturing and construction data weighed on sentiment. And despite expectations of record Cyber Monday sales of $9.4 billion, retail stocks were down around 1%. At the close of trade the Dow Jones index was down by 268 points or 1.0% to near session lows. The S&P500 index fell by 0.9% and the Nasdaq index lost 97.5 points or 1.1%. 

Global oil prices rose by up to 1.4% on Monday. Wire reports suggest that OPEC and its allies may deepen output cuts at the meetings later in the week to support prices. Also firmer Chinese economic data supported prices. OPEC nations meet on Thursday and the wider OPEC+ grouping meets on Friday. The most active Brent crude contract was up by US43 cents or 0.7% to US$60.92 a barrel. And the US Nymex price rose by US79 cents or 1.4% to US$55.96 a barrel. 

Base metal prices rose by up to 1.2% on the London Metal Exchange on Monday with aluminium up the most. But zinc and lead both fell by 1.7%. 

The gold futures price fell by US$3.30 to US$1,462.30 an ounce. Spot gold was trading near US$1,463 an ounce in late US trade. Iron ore rose by US$1.50 or 1.7% to US$88.75 a tonne.
