The Australian share market Thursday broke its losing streak. The market was boosted by US President Barack Obama's first State of the Union address to Congress. Mr. Obama said jobs must be the number one priority in 2010 and offered proposals for financial reform, education, health care reform, government spending, national security and more. At the close, the benchmark S&P/ASX 200 index rose 28.7 points, or 0.62 per cent, to 4673.3, while the broader All Ordinaries lifted 0.59 per cent to 4697.7.
US stocks closed flat overnight after a weaker-than-expected survey on consumer confidence. The Conference Board reported its confidence index fell to 46.6 from 49.3 in June, primarily due to a worsening job market.
