April 2007 Newsletter

Welcome to Lewis Financial's April 2007 Newsletter.

Following on from last month's newsletter we have included an article which provides additional information with regard to the key superannuation opportunities which may be available to you before and after 1st July 2007.

We look at an article discussing the volatility of the Australian dollar and the factors influencing it.

We turn our attention to a commentary by Dr Shane Oliver which questions the view that strong investment returns are being fueled by a liquidity boom and if correct, what may be ahead of us.

Finally, we look at an article by Hillross Economist, Brad Matthews, that looks at why Chinese share prices fell, Australia's response and whether this response was reasonable.

We hope, as always, that you find the articles of interest. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
