Scoreboard: Golden opportunity

Higher gold and oil prices should deliver a welcome booster to the local sharemarket, though gains could be tempered as Westpac goes ex-dividend.

In Australia, the futures market is tipping a three-point fall at the start of trade, but we expect a gain of 10-15 points following gains in oil and gold prices in the US on Friday. Chinese trade figures on Saturday were also better than expected, while Westpac may restrain gains as it goes ex-dividend.
