Investing.com - The S&P/ASX 200 was lower in early Tuesday deals, falling 7.9 points or 0.11% to 7240.3, trading at 4-week lows as market participants tracked overnight losses on Wall Street amid pervading fears over a real estate market crash in China, while miners capped losses despite a continued rout in Iron ore prices.

In coronavirus news, Victoria added a fresh outbreak high of 603 cases today, while New South Wales added 1022 cases as health authorities reintroduced lockdown restrictions in the Byron, Kempsey and Tweed council areas from 5pm today for one week.

Among stocks, Rio Tinto Ltd (ASX:RIO) added 1.57%, BHP Billiton Ltd (ASX:BHP) gained 1.2% and Fortescue Metals Group Ltd (ASX:FMG)lifted 2.38% despite Iron ore prices dipping to near yearly lows overnight as China continues to curb steel production. Meantime, APA Group (ASX:APA) fell 4.75%, indicating a sour response from investors after the company’s A$9.9 billion bid for AusNet services earlier in the morning, while AusNet Services Ltd (ASX:AST) shares surged 19.19%.

Ahead in the session, investors will be closely monitoring the Reserve Bank of Australia’s Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes for further tapering clues as the country deals with continued lockdown restrictions across the country.

Meantime, ASX 200 Futures were trading 73 points or 1.02% higher.

In New Zealand, the NZX 50 lost 86.35 points or 0.66% to 13092.23.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
