The Australian shares Tuesday posted losses for the sixth consecutive day as Asian markets were widely lower. Chinese market dropped more than 4 per cent due to a massive sell-off after the Agricultural Bank of China offered a lower-than-expected price in its Shanghai tranche IPO. Investors feared that this could be a signal of slow-down in fresh investment into Chinese equities.

Australian Market Report of June 3, 2010: Leighton (ASX:LEI) Secured A$273m Mining Contract in Mongolia
The Australian market Thursday delivered a strong opening, supported by optimism towards the US economy. The catalyst for the jump was the better-than-expected figures in pending home sales in the US, which pushed Wall Street higher overnight. The local market had been in a negative territory for three consecutive days this week. The S&P/ASX 200 index today rebounded with a 1.8 per cent jump in early trade.
The Australian sharemarket ended the four consecutive day losing streak and closed higher on Friday in quiet trading condition. The market opened stronger on the good lead from Wall Street and made sustained gains, helped by the Chinese industrial production data suggesting demand for Australian resources will remain strong. At the close, the benchmark S&P/ASX 200 index rose 28.5 points, or 0.62 per cent, to 4635.20 points, while the broader All Ordinaries index also advanced 28.5 at 4651.40 points. For the week, the market closed down 1.4 percent.
