On Stockhead today,  The Americas Dream — the gold projects proving irresistible to Australian explorers; Morningstar is backing these 3 small caps for big growth; and can iron ore stay above $US100 per tonne?

But first…

The day ahead

A smattering of second-tier data points during Asian trade will be mere precursors to the marquee ‘data event of the week’ later tonight — US payroll numbers for May.

The median forecast is for the US unemployment rate to climb to 19.5 per cent, while wage growth is expected to be hit by “rising job loss and spare capacity”, Westpac said.

The following companies are in trading halts and are expected to exit tomorrow:

Technology Metals Australia (ASX:TMT) – capital raising
Aruma Resources (ASX:AAJ) – capital raising
IncentiaPay (ASX:INP) – financing arrangements
Suda Pharmaceuticals (ASX:SUD) – capital raising
Wide Open Agriculture (ASX:WOA) – capital raising
HeraMED (ASX:HMD) – capital raising
Helix Resources (ASX:HLX) – capital raising
