  • NEWSLETTER – June 2018 BUSINESSES AT THE COLD FACE THANE FINANCE The Australian Dollar is currently sitting at 74 cents to the US Dollar. It has had a fairly static ride in the recent quarter, however coming down on a steady decline since January. This is good news for our exporters and the economy in general. The volatility has decreased over the recent quarters or at least the dollar is gaining predictability. We see no major changes in this range within the coming months.

  • NEWSLETTER – March 2018 BUSINESSES AT THE COLD FACE THANE FINANCE Major stock markets around the world are experiencing a bumpy ride in the micro cycle, the ASX is no stranger to this as well. The reasoning behind the bumpy ride is confusing economic figures coming out from the U.S. creating some negative sentiment on the back of their slight recovery. The macro cycle for the ASX doesn’t look overtly positive, so some caution is required by investors. This may change in the next quarter if our onshore business indicators report with stronger results at the end of the June

  • NEWSLETTER – September 2017 BUSINESSES AT THE COLD FACE THANE FINANCE The Australian share market as a broad base has held its ground or moved to a very slight increase. The S&P/ASX 200 has increased by half a percent over the same period for the previous year. This flat movement is likely to continue through the coming half of the calendar year. Whilst there are some outstanding performances in some areas of mining (such as lithium and cobalt and some shares relating to infrastructure), the rest of the market has been lacklustre. The international markets continue to show signs of

  • NEWSLETTER – September 2017 BUSINESSES AT THE COLD FACE THANE FINANCE The ASX has steadied amongst some issues pertaining to compliance, particularly around financial institutions. Commonwealth Bank are being the hardest hit, and to that end, we feel that there is probably more pain to come. There is some correction with mining stocks, as those companies address their cost of doing business (particularly wages), and rationalise their competitiveness with world markets. We see the all ordinaries continuing on a steady path given the cash rate should remain steady and withstanding any changes in the Australian dollar. Source: ASX News &

  • NEWSLETTER – June 2017 BUSINESSES AT THE COLD FACE THANE FINANCE The All Ordinaries traded fairly flat for the last 3 months which also reflected in economic data and interest rates. We still continue to see some green shoots amongst the blue chip and green chip stocks with a clear absence of growth from the mining and speculative arena. Many economists are cautiously optimistic on the direction of the All Ordinaries over the next few months despite its challenging performance in the last 6 months. However, please remember that the optimism is moderate and in comparison to the challenges of

  • NEWSLETTER – MARCH 2017 BUSINESSES AT THE COLD FACE THANE FINANCE Interest rates were left on hold for the full quarter, which was largely predicted by most economists, and in the medium term this looks to be the prevailing philosophy for the Reserve Bank. We expect the next interest rate movement to be upward given the rhetoric coming out of the U.S., but we don’t see Australian interest rates moving any time soon. This may not, however, deter the banks from acting outside of the RBA’s direction. We may find that the banks raise interest rates earlier than expected. This

  • NEWSLETTER – DECEMBER 2016 BUSINESSES AT THE COLD FACE THANE FINANCE Whilst we have seen some positive trends midyear, it appears that the latter part of the year will be somewhat more challenged. ANZ economists have sighted that markets are weakening in the back end of 2016 due to a noticeable reduction in Firms’ profits. They have noted that they expect the profitability index to average 6.9 on a comparative of 11.9 in the first 6 months of the year. In line with this the NAB (economic) Survey has placed business conditions at a 19 month low. The All Ords

  • NEWSLETTER – SEPTEMBER 2016 BUSINESSES AT THE COLD FACE THANE FINANCE The Australian stock exchange continue to ride on hopes and fears of the American interest rate announcements (which appears to be holding firm). In the last quarter, we have seen the index remain steady which is in slight contrast to the challenges it faced in the previous 12 months. We expect some moderately positive movement in the coming quarter, again on the back of new that the U.S. economy is in slow recovery. Economists are also projecting that Japan’s latest economic reforms will have a positive effect on our
