On Stockhead today, commission-free trading is gaining momentum but investors need to do their homework, OreCorp’s value is rising as it clears hurdles in Tanzania and this week’s expert Health Kick podcast.

But first…

 

The day ahead

Kicking off a busy schedule today, the ABS will release data for September building approvals at 11:30am (eastern). After a sharp fall in August, building approvals are now at the lowest level since 2013.

Also at 11:30am, the RBA will release private sector credit figures for September, where the focus is likely to be on changes in loan growth to property investors.

During Asian trade, the Bank of Japan will make its latest policy decision on interest rates and China will release October manufacturing PMIs.

Looking abroad, the US economy will get the September reading of income & expenditure, which includes the widely-followed PCE inflation measure.

The following companies are scheduled to come out of a trading halt or voluntary suspension today:

IXUP (ASX:IXU) – capital raising
Alexium International Group (ASX:AJX) – capital raising
Strike Energy (ASX:STX) – capital raising
Tempo Australia (ASX:TPP) – capital raising
