INTERESTRATES 30-Daybankbills 3.15% 60-Daybankbills 3.15% 90-Daybankbills 3.14% 180-Daybankbills 3.08% Unofficial cashrates: (11am) 3.00% Stocks fall on US fiscal cliff concern Market THE Australian share market closed lower yesterday as investors sold off stocks amid worries about fiscal cliff negotiations in the US. A controversial Republican plan to let tax breaks expire on millionaires was defeated yesterday when it failed to earn enough party support, leaving negotiations on averting the fiscal cliff up in the air. At the close of trade, the benchmark S&P/ASX200 index was 10.5 points, or 0.23 per cent lower at 4623.6, while the broader All Ordinaries index was down 11.4 points, or 0.25 per cent, at 4635.2. On the ASX 24, the March share price index futures contract was 17 points lower at 4592, with 28,741 contracts traded. World investors fear the approaching fiscal cliff tax increases and government spending cuts that take effect January 1 and could tip the worlds largest economy back into recession unless a compromise is found. CMC Markets Chief market strategist Michael McCarthy said a sell off occurred after the Dow Futures fell 200 points. The market has put the most negative interpretation on that, Mr McCarthy said. Frankly, that looks like a knee-jerk reaction to me because it only needs about 15 moderate Republicans to vote with the Democrats and a deal will be done. Mining stocks suffered some of the heaviest losses, with Rio Tinto down 56c to $64.74, BHP Billiton shed 34c to $36.70 and Fortescue Metals gave up 12c to $4.38. ANZ shares were 15c, or 0.6 per cent up, at $24.95, Commonwealth Bank was 49c stronger at $62, Westpac had added 20c to $26.17 and National Australia Bank was 6c higher a $24.94. In local news, Billabong shares sunk to near all-time lows after chief financial of ficer Craig White left the troubled surfwear retailer late on Thursday. It came less than a day after the company began considering its lowest takeover offer in 10 months. But by the close yesterday, Billabong shares had regained some ground, up 2.5c at 82.5 cents. The spot price of Sydney gold closed at $US1644.32, down $US24.26 from Thursdays close of $US1,668.58. National turnover was 2.38 billion shares worth $8.4 bil lion, with 411 stocks up, 546 down and 352 unchanged. Meanwhile, Tokyo stocks closed 0.99 per cent lower yesterday after a 1.06 opening on a weaker yen and hopes of a fiscal cliff package giving up morning gains as US politicians headed home for the holiday break without a deal on the table. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index slipped 99.27 points to 9940.06, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares was off 0.70 per cent, or 5.89 points, at 832.72.
