On Stockhead today, ASX small caps position for greener Europe, China needs a mountain of uranium and is Imex dancing underneath the radiology radar?

But first…

The week ahead

Keep an eye out for November jobs data on Thursday, where Westpac expects a rebound in Victoria to drive “solid bounces in employment”.

The federal government is also on deck this morning with its 2020/21 federal budget update.

And the minutes from the RBA’s December meeting will be released tomorrow, along with a separate speech from Jonathan Kearns, the central bank’s head of financial stability.

Looking abroad, key events will be highlighted by the US Federal Reserve’s policy meeting on Wednesday night.

Westpac says there is “clearly a justification for the FOMC to increase accommodation in December. It is much easier to pull back on stimulus than to make up for lost time”.
