The benchmark S&P/ ASX200 index was up 6.7 points, or 0.16 per cent, at 4194.7 points, while the broader All Ordinaries index rose 7.6 points, or 0.18 per cent, to 4277.4 points. On the ASX 24, the Septem ber share price index futures contract lost five points at 4182 points on volume of 41,394 contracts. The local bourse opened slightly higher yesterday, despite a weak lead from Wall Street, after US President Barack Obama introduced a highly-anticipated $423.06 billion plan to Congress that he said would jolt the stal led economy and create more jobs. Wilson HTM head of wealth management Andrew Coppin said investors were wary of whether President Obamas American Jobs Act would pass in Congress, and were awaiting Wall Streets response to the plan when US markets re-opened on Monday (US time). Wealth Within analyst Janine Cox said the market was highly reactive to news from the US, with investors taking a wait-and-see ap proach. Gold stocks made major moves yesterday, with Australias biggest gold miner Newcrest Mining up 31 cents at $39.86. Perseus Mining Ltd was also trading 11 cents, or 2.8 per cent, higher at $4, with OceanaGold Corp up 14 cents, or 5.9 per cent, at $2.52. Local players also poured money into consumer staples, with the sector trading 0.57 per cent higher. Goodman Fielder, owner of grocery brands like Wonder White and Helgas bread, was the top performing stock in the ASX 100, gaining 5.6 per cent, or 3.5 cents, to 66.5 cents. Metcash Ltd shares fell three cents to $4.19 after the competition watchdog said it would appeal a Federal Court judgment which paved the way for the grocery wholesaler to takeover the Franklins supermarket business. Telecoms closed up seven per cent, with Telstra shares two cents higher to $3.04. Health care and energy stocks fell in afternoon trade, closing down 0.21 and 0.27 per cent respectively. The financials finished the day 0.19 per cent higher. Westpac shares were four cents higher at $20.13 after it was named the worlds best bank for corporate sustainability in 2011/12 by Dow Jones Indexes (DJI) and Swiss investment boutique SAM. National turnover was 2.13 billion securities changing hands for $4.21 billion, with 618 stocks up, 423 down and 346 steady.
