The S&P/ASX200 closed up Friday, gaining 37 points or 0.5% to 7,523, on light volumes as traders await the headline US non-farm payroll numbers tonight. The coal/lithium train did leave the station this morning at the open, Orocobre (ORE) and Whitehaven Coal arriving at 7.6% and 6.4% by the close. Not much on the debit sheet, Afterpay (APT) and Bluescope (BSL) down 2.9% and 2.7%. Yes, it was a good week on the index, especially for September which is usually crappy, the only month in fact of the last 17 straight that didn't end in gains. Not bad, really. And the index is now just 1.4% off of its record highs too. Let's take this up again on Monday.
