According to the latest SPI futures, the ASX 200 is expected to open the day 31 points or 0.5% higher this morning.

Technolgy One full year results.
The TechnologyOne Ltd (ASX: TNE) share price will be on watch today when it releases its full year results. The enterprise software company has provided full year guidance for net profit before tax growth of 8% to 12% in FY 2020. This is expected to be driven by strong growth in its software-as-a-service (SaaS) business. In the first half it reported a 33% increase in SaaS annual recurring revenue (ARR) to $110.2 million.
Oil prices push higher.
Energy producers such as Oil Search Ltd (ASX: OSH) and Woodside Petroleum Limited (ASX: WPL) could be on the rise today after oil prices pushed higher. According to Bloomberg, the WTI crude oil price is up 1.2% to US$42.94 a barrel and the Brent crude oil price climbed 2.2% to US$45.95 a barrel. News that the AstraZeneca-Oxford University COVID vaccine is up to 90% effective gave prices a lift.
Gold price sinks on vaccine new.
Gold miners including Evolution Mining Ltd (ASX: EVN) and Northern Star Resources Ltd (ASX: NST) could have a tough day after the gold price sank lower. According to CNBC, the spot gold price sank 1.95% to US$1,836.10 an ounce. AstraZeneca’s positive vaccine data weighed heavily on safe haven assets.
Nanosonics annual general meeting.
The Nanosonics Ltd (ASX: NAN) share price could be on the move today when it holds its annual general meeting. Although the infection prevention company only recently released a business update, it promised a more detailed one with the release of its AGM presentation. This could mean earnings guidance for the first half.
