On Stockhead today, Guy Le Page smells bargain juniors, surviving a market correction, and just when it couldn’t get worse for BNPL…

But first, the day ahead.

Today, the ABS issues the all-important labour force survey for May.

“CBA Group economists expect around 25,000 jobs to be added in the month, with the unemployment rate easing from 3.9 per cent to 3.8 per cent, the lowest level since August 1974,” CommSec says.

“Also on Thursday, the RBA issues its Bulletin, containing a range of insightful economic research.”
