After 107 days, stay at home rules were eased in Sydney.

Despite the state still recording just under 500 cases a day, restrictions were eased with over 70% of over 16s fully vaccinated.

While there are more easing of restrictions to come, pubs, retail and hairdressers were allowed to re-open. And some couldn’t even wait until the sun rose.

However, any good re-opening vibes in NSW failed to translate into broader gains on the ASX, which dipped in early Monday trade following a mixed session on Wall Street to end the week.

As at 11.45am (AEDT), the ASX 200 was down by 0.59% and the only sectors up were energy and materials.
