        AU Morning Wrap: ASX Slips as Miners Sell off; RBA Expected to Hold
        Wall Street Summary
        Stocks, bonds and precious metals retreated Monday, reversing course after markets last week extended a monthlong stretch of gains.
        Higher bond yields weighed on shares of large technology companies, pressuring the broader stock market. The tech-focused $Nasdaq Composite Index(.IXIC.US)$ lost 0.8 per cent, and the benchmark $S&P 500 Index(.SPX.US)$ dropped 0.5 per cent. The $Dow Jones Industrial Average(.DJI.US)$ slipped 0.1 per cent, or 41 points, snapping a four-day win streak.
        AU Market Watch
        Australian shares are tilting lower, tracking a dip on Wall Street after the recent strong rally prompted investors to take profit in the mega cap tech stocks and as bond yields reversed.
        The $S&P/ASX 200(.XJO.AU)$ is 36 points, or 0.5 per cent lower, at 7088.4. The All Ordinaries is also 0.5 per cent lower.
        Materials are the worst hit, down 1.8 per cent. Iron ore miners,$BHP Group Ltd(BHP.AU)$, $Rio Tinto Ltd(RIO.AU)$ and $Fortescue Ltd(FMG.AU)$ have all dipped more than 1.5 per cent. Gold and lithium stocks are also lower, tracking declines in commodity prices.
        Energy stocks are also dragging the index lower following a fall in the price of oil.
