Happy Easter!

Another beautiful day down at the harbour today; no royals today, though, since they were out west visiting the Blue Mountains and bushfire zones today.


And a happy finish to the week for share markets as we head into the Easter break.

Main news this week was the iron ore miners big production results for the quarter, but stocks have mostly just been holding their own.

I need to start thinking about stock choices for next month's Sydney Morning Herald shares race...I'm not feeling too inspired at the moment, but let's see how we go!

To round off the trading week's news, the Aussie dollar is hovering at around 93.5 cents and finally, check out what the markets are now beginning to think about 2015 interest rates - very interesting! (click chart).


Have a great Easter all!
