Despite the plunge in iron ore prices overnight, the ASX 200 is holding up and is up by 0.20% heading into the midday trading.
Materials sector was the main laggard, down by 1%, while Consumer Staples led the pack at half time, up by 1.8%.
Treasury Wine Estates (ASX:TWE) over-performed the Staples, rising by 5%. There was no news on TWE today, but yesterday the company had announced a $250 million in profits and declared a final dividend of 13c a share.
Overnight, the iron ore price tumbled by 13.5% to $US132.66 a tonne, on demand concerns from China. The iron ore spot price has now tumbled by 45% from its highs in May.
Meanwhile, the ASX Emerging Companies Index (XEC) has dropped by 1.2% at midday.
