On Stockhead today: outsiders attracted to local M&A season in cannabis, is Aussie retail really struggling, Secret Broker looks at the Latitude debacle and music tech looking most groovy in past fortnight.

But first:

The day ahead

It’s a relatively quiet data schedule both locally and abroad to end the week.

During the Asian session there’s monthly inflation data out of Japan, and China’s stats bureau will release its monthly data deluge comprising fixed asset investment, industrial production and retail sales. China also has quarterly GDP data, with annual growth expected to slow slightly to 6.1 per cent.

And markets will await a big weekend coming up in UK parliament, with lawmakers set to vote on the latest Brexit agreement with the European Union.

The following companies are in trading halts and are expected to exit in the next 48 hours:

Friday:

Alloy Resources (ASX:AYR) – capital raising
Fluence Corp (ASX:FLC) – capital raising
Parazero (ASX:PRZ) – capital raising
