The Australian share market is expected to open around one per cent lower tomorrow after US stocks fell due to fresh concerns about the financial stability of the eurozone.
CommSec economist Craig James said Australian stocks would trade in line with the US in the absence of domestic leads.
“We are running into the end of the month, quarter and financial year so window dressing and profit taking is likely to be the order of the day as we get a bit closer towards June 30,” Mr James said.
