On Stockhead today, capital raisings were tough in March but the cash was still flowing for gold explorers, the nine gold explorers that could be on the verge of a major discovery and COVID-19’s blow on consumer spending is persisting.

But first…

 

The day ahead

For local traders, there’s the minutes from the RBA’s emergency meeting on March 18, as well as CoreLogic’s monthly home price index and manufacturing PMIs for March.
