The first two weeks of the month tend to be much more interesting than the latter two.
Why? More local data! This week we have a stack of releases to come.
These include a Reserve Bank Board Meeting on April Fools' Day (no changes expected) and RP Data's property market data for the month of March, which may or may not show the biggest monthly gains on record after a sluggish February.
We also have the retail trade data for February: recall that Janaury showed a stonking increase in sales.
And if that wasn't enough we also have building approvals figures, the international trade data in goods and services data, engineering construction activity, monthly inflation figures, regional population growth and the Dun & Bradstreet Business Survey.
Lots to look forward to!
For this week's movie at Broadway, watched Russell Crowe's Noah.
Very long film. Enjoyed it and it was entertaining, and don't think I need to issue a spoiler alert to mention that the ark scenes were very impressive. And the acting was great, if a little serious.
But struggling to give it more than 6/10 for various reasons.
Trying to refrain from saying that the plot had "more holes in it than a Swiss Cheese"...but you know what...
