As we get through the middle part of the day the strength in the local market remains with the main index higher by 0.80% or 48.30 points at 6086.00. It is approaching the high from a few days ago at 6090.52 on Jan 29th where we stumbled back towards 6000.  Best performers in the index so far are GUD +5.50%, BPT +4.62 and SVW +4.09 percent while TGR -4.07%, LYC -3.01% and RFG -2.81%  are among the poorer performers so far today.  Energy is among the best performing +1.14% with the likes of WPL  +1.39% and STO.AX +0.88%.  Currencies remain relatively unchanged from this mornings levels and perhaps look for markets to lock in some profits ahead of the close given the strength in the market over the past 2 trading sessions.
