Tuesday 28 July - The local market opened lower today on the back of losses on Wall Street and China overnight. However, the negativity was short-lived as stocks climbed above the flat-line mid-afternoon.

There were mixed results from the sectors; energy gained most significantly whilst industrials were the biggest laggard. The Australian dollar gained against most major currencies.

The All Ordinaries fell 8.20 points (-0.15%) to 5,571.00 while the S&P/ASX 200 fell 5.20 points (-0.09%) to 5,584.70.
