On Stockhead today, two pro investors tell how to profit from the ASX small cap boom, September’s small cap winners and losers, and Australia’s nickel outlook post-pandemic.

But first…

 

The week ahead

Today the ASX will be open despite being a public holiday in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and the ACT.

Potentially market-moving economic data this week will be headlined with trade data and the Reserve Bank’s monthly interest rate decision on Tuesday.

Also look out for home loans data on Wednesday.

The following companies are in trading halts and are expected to exit in the next couple of trading days:

Monday:

The Agency Group (ASX:AU1) – capital raising
Renegade Exploration (ASX:RNX) – capital raising
AML3D (ASX:AL3) – capital raising
BlackEarth Minerals (ASX:BEM) – capital raising
Nova Minerals (ASX:NVA) – interim mineral resource
Serko (ASX:SKO) – capital raising

Tuesday:

Eagle Mountain Mining (ASX:EM2) – capital raising

On Twitter, the most popular article was about Thursday’s news of iron ore giant Vale suspending operations at one of its concentration plants — a move that sent iron ore prices higher.
