  • Australia Stocks extend gains to third day
  • December 03,2020  16:11
  • The Australian share market managed to finish higher for third day in row on Thursday, 03 December 2020, after swinging between gains and losses throughout the session. The risk appetite buying was propelled by lifting of border curbs in the country's two most populous states, with heavyweight energy and mining firms leading the charge.

    At closing bell, the benchmark S&P/ASX200 inclined 25.07 points, or 0.38%, to 6,615.27. The broader All Ordinaries added 35.97 points, or 0.53%, to 6,827.27.

    Mining stocks gained as iron ore continued to lift and is now closing in on seven year highs. Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) added 13.3%. BHP Group (BHP) rose 4.9% and Rio Tinto (RIO) gained 6.9%.

    Energy stocks were boosted by commodity prices with oil prices rising on a drop in US supply. Origin Energy, Oil Search, Santos and Woodside Petroleum rose 1-2 percent after crude oil prices rebounded overnight.

    Banks ended with modest losses, while conglomerate Macquarie Group edged up slightly after announcing its agreement to buy U.S.-based investment management firm Waddell & Reed Financial Inc for $1.7 billion in cash.
