China lifts tariffs on Australian barley imports after 3 years, Canberra eyes wine next

China announced on Friday it will lift tariffs on Australian barley imports starting Aug. 5, a move that points to improving bilateral relations and would alleviate supply concerns after Russia suspended a humanitarian corridor to deliver key Ukrainian grains to global markets.

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce “has ruled that it is no longer necessary to continue to impose anti-dumping duties and countervailing duties on imports of barley originating in Australia in view of changes in the Chinese barley market,” it said in a statement Friday. No further details on these changes were provided.

Australia’s trade, foreign and agriculture ministers said they “welcome this outcome” and expect a similar process to follow for the removal of duties on Australian wine. In March 2021, China introduced a crushing five-year tariff of up to 218% on Australian wine.

Australia central bank cuts growth outlook for 2023

Australia’s central bank has cut the growth outlook for the country to 1% for 2023, down from its previous estimate of 1.25%.

The Reserve Bank of Australia said in its quarterly monetary policy statement that “growth in economic activity in Australia is forecast to remain subdued over the rest of the year, as cost-of-living pressures and the rise in interest rates continue to weigh on domestic demand.”

Still, the RBA noted inflation was “heading in the right direction,” cutting its inflation rate forecasts to 4.25% from 4.5%. The bank noted that inflation has been declining in the June quarter, but says it still remains “too high.”

It expects inflation to continue to decline, hitting 3.75% at the end of 2024 and back within the 2–3% target range in late 2025.

Small-cap benchmark is still shy of a 52-week high

It’s been a hot summer for the Russell 2000, but the small-cap index remains short of eclipsing its 52-week high.

Over the past three months, the index has gained 12.7% – outperforming the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average in that period. All three of the major averages have notched fresh 52-week highs over the summer, with the 30-stock Dow registering this achievement earlier this week.

The Russell 2000 is 3.5% away from its 52-week high level of 2,030.05, which it hit on Aug. 16, 2022.

Individual investor bullishness jumps again in latest AAII survey

Bullishness among individual investors that stocks prices will rise over the next six months surged again, to 49.0% from 44.9% last week, and stayed above the historic average of 37.5% for a ninth straight week, according to the latest survey from the American Association of Individual Investors.

The last time bullishness was above average for this long was from February-May, 2021.

That’s good for contrarians who want to bet against the market. Rising bullishness is usually tied to increased risk, and can suggest that much of the desired buying has already happened.

Bearish sentiment, that prices will drop in the next six months, fell to 21.3% among retail investors, from 24.1% last week, and was below average (31.0%) for a ninth week — the longest since February-June, 2021.

Neutral sentiment, that prices won’t change much over the next six months, eased to 29.7% from 31.0% against an historical average of 31.5%.
