Welcome to the last day of the financial year, likely a busy day for all.

As the curtain closed on a financial year like no other, so too did it close on major events: Vitalharvest unitholders finally got a say, voting in favour of Macquarie Agricultural Funds Management’s (MAFM) proposal; Primewest had its last day of trading, and Monday was another day of acquisitions for both those living in Brassall and also those living online.

The broader market

The ASX 200 closed at 7,313 points today. For the past five days, there’s been virtually no change, said the ASX, but it is 1.26% below the 52 week high.

As the new year ticked over, the market was 6,587.10 points. The market has seen incredible leaps and bounds, trading above 7,400 in recent weeks.
