    • The Australian dollar has rallied 7% since January. Barron's says it could continue to rise as China's economy stabilizes and metals and oil rebound, providing a tailwind for Australian stocks.
    • "If you're a fund manager sitting in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Boston, or London, and you're saying, 'Where in the world am I going to put my money?' Australia looks attractive in terms of yield, policy common sense, and low levels of government debt, and you would say, 'I need to have some money in there because it's a relatively good story,' " says Market Economics' Stephen Koukoulas.
    • Barron's is positive on iShares MSCI Australia ETF (NYSEARCA:EWA), Aberdeen Australia Equity CEF (NYSEMKT:IAF),  BHP Billiton (NYSE:BHP), WisdomTree Australia & New Zealand Debt fund (NYSEARCA:AUNZ), Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO), South32 (OTCPK:SHTLF, OTCPK:SOUHY) and Aurizon Holdings (OTC:AZKHY, OTCPK:QRNNF).

    • Australian CPI eased to +0.6% on quarter in Q1 from +0.8% in Q4 and came in below consensus that was also +0.8%.

    • Core CPI +0.5% on quarter vs +0.9% and +0.7%. On year, core inflation +2.6% vs +2.6% and +2.9%.

    • "The Reserve Bank can comfortably keep interest rates at exceptionally low levels over the near term," says economist Savanth Sebastian. "Whichever way you cut it, inflation is well and truly in check."
    • The S&P/ASX 200 is +0.7% and the AUD-USD is -0.9% at $0.9285. (PR)

    • The number of full-time Australian jobs has risen by the largest amount since 1991, jumping by 80,500 in February vs just 2,700 in January. The increase is also the second-largest ever and indicates that the central bank's policy of record-low interest rates is having an impact.
    • The overall number of jobs increased by 47,300 vs 18,000 previously and consensus that was 18,000 also.
    • The number of part-time jobs fell by 33,200 vs growth of 3,400 in January.
    • As expected, the unemployment rate held stead at 6%.

The housing recovery continues to gather momentum, while rising wealth levels are supporting confidence."
    • The S&P/ASX 200 rose 0.5%, while the Australian dollar is +0.8% at $0.9063.

    • "It's still a story that inflation is subdued but perhaps it's not so much of a non-issue as markets have thought," says economist Besa Deda. "It makes the hurdle for an RBA cut a little higher and our expectation is that they won't cut any further, but will keep rates on hold for longer."
