Once again we see contradictions in the news, this time from the same news site. According to ABC news online dated 8/9/15 (posted 7/9/15 at 9:37pm aest) China’s market made early gains “after a weak lead from Wall Street”. How can this be when Wall Street was closed due to their Labour Day holiday as stated in a different story by ABC online on 8/9/15 (posted at 7:48am) “with a US holiday turning the focus from Wall Street to Europe”. Even if it was open and trading as a normal Monday the New York stock exchange doesn’t open until 11:30 pm aest. This is why that old mantra repeated many times by the elderly when I was a child in the seventies “don’t believe everything you read in the paper” constantly rings true to me.
