Here’s Yahoo Finance’s Tuesday morning wrap.
The ASX is expected to fall early, after US stocks finished lower on extended closures of indoor venues to slow the spread of coronavirus.
Today, investors will be waiting on weekly jobs and wages data to be released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
One Australian dollar was buying 69.40 US cents at 0700 AEST, lower from 69.75 US cents at the close of trade on Monday.
In the US, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq finished lower, weighed down by tech giants Amazon and Microsoft. It comes as California extended venue closures and the White House rejected nearly all Chinese claims in the South China sea.

Tesla: Almost 40,000 Robinhood, or day trading, accounts added Tesla shares during a single four-hour span on Monday, new data revealed.

Ski injury to sell-out item: A former professional skier put on 25 kilograms and was diagnosed as a pre-diabetic after a career-ending injury after eating snacks she thought were healthy, but were actually packed with sugar.
That led her to launch Krumbled Foods’ Beauty Bites - snacks that include edible collagen. Within three weeks of launch, the product sold out.
Have a great day.
