The benchmark S&P/ ASX200 index rose 34.8 points, or 0.74 per cent, to 4740.7 points yesterday, while the broader All Ordinaries index advanced 38.5 points, or 0.82 per cent, to 4761.4 points. It was the S&P/ASX200s highest close since it finished the local trading day at 4756.4 points on May 19, 2011. On the ASX 24, the March share price index futures contract was up 32 points at 4716 points, on volume of 28,727 contracts. The local market opened up 0.4 per cent, following a strong lead from Wall Street, and extended gains through the day with investors buoyed by the deal over the US fiscal cliff and firmer commodities prices during the overnight session. Positive data from China published yesterday also lifted sentiment on equities markets. Resources-related sectors were among the best performers on a day of broadbased gains on the Australian bourse. The gold sector climbed 2.73 per cent, metals and minerals companies rose 1.64 per cent and the materials sector advanced 1.5 per cent, according to IRESS data. BHP Billiton ended up 31c at $38.15, while Rio Tinto finished $1.63 firmer at $69.25. Financial stocks a large component of the Australian market were 0.41 per cent higher, with the four big retail banks posting gains. ANZ climbed 9c to $25.18, CBA advanced 52c to $63.24 a record closing high NAB rose 15c to $25.25 and Westpac was up 9c at $26.19. Regional equities are seeing a continuation of the buoyant risk environment in Asia today as investors react to the passing of the fiscal cliff deal, IG markets strategist Stan Shamu wrote in a research note. Although some analysts feel this is merely a relief rally as US leaders kick the can down the road so to speak, it seems to have done the job for now. Making news yesterday, IAG said it had raised its catastrophe reinsurance program to $5 billion for 2013, from $4.7 billion in 2012. IAG was up 3c at $4.72. Brambles rose 10c to $7.69 after the pallet company reported that it had completed the C=135 million ($A170.82 million) acquisition of intermediate bulk container company Pallecon. The spot price of gold in Sydney finished the day at $US1686.43 a fine ounce, which was up $US6.25 from Wednesdays local close of $US1680.18 an ounce. National turnover was 1.4 billion securities worth $2.8 billion, with 621 stocks finishing up, 305 down and 333 unchanged.
