Good morning.

Here’s Yahoo Finance’s Tuesday morning wrap.

The ASX is expected to rise at the open, with the SPI200 Futures Contract up 48 points to 6,161 after reaching a seven-week trading high on Monday.

In the US, all three major indices were up at the end of trade as investors became optimistic over more fiscal stimulus.

The Dow jones rose 0.88 per cent to 28,837.52 points, the S&P 500 rose 1.64 per cent to 3,534.22 points and the Nasdaq rose 2.56 per cent to 11,876.26 points.

NSW Premier’s ‘stuff up’: Gladys Berejiklian will face another grilling over her relationship with ex-Wagga Wagga MP Daryl Maguire, as the Independent Commission Against Corruption continues its inquiry.

The ICAC accused Maguire of using his public office and parliamentary resources to improperly gain a benefit for himself or for G8way International - a company he allegedly "effectively controlled".

The NSW Premier said she “stuffed up” personally, but not professionally in having a relationship with Maguire.
