On Stockhead today, the ASX small cap silver plays set to enjoy a longer ride, who’s running hot in the past two weeks, and how to find rising stocks in a falling market.

But first…

The week ahead

Key events this week will be led by a speech on Tuesday from RBA deputy governor Guy Debelle, called “The Australian Economy and Monetary Policy”.

“We think it is a clear opportunity to address the issue of what further options are open to the RBA to ease monetary policy further,” CBA economist Nicolas Guesnon said.

What got you talking last week

Readers enjoyed the latest edition of V-Con, Stockhead’s conference series comprising expert interviews and company presentations, which last week focused on the lucrative rare earths market.

Another talking point was Angela East’s analysis of how COVID-19 policy stimulus has created “a huge amount of speculative activity” in small caps.

And there was plenty of interest in Mike Cooper’s analysis of ongoing Chinese demand for commodities, and the resulting impact on different bulk commodity prices.
