89619"Australian Shares Fall, Iron ore Declines"11/12/2019 1:17:25 AM"The ASX 200 lost 31 points or -0.46% to 6740 by 12:15pm AEDT, as iron ore prices hit fresh 9-month lows. Vivek Dhar, mining and commodities analyst at the Commonwealth Bank attributed the weakness to decreased demand from China, saying “Steel mills in China and traders were reluctant to buy iron ore ahead of announcements on winter production cuts. Winter production cuts usually extend from mid November to mid March as policymakers look to reduce industrial output in northern China to combat seasonally higher air pollution.” The biggest gains have been led by JIN Jumbo Interactive Limited (1.9 points or 9.35% to 22.21), DHG Domain Holdings Australia Limited (0.23 points or 7.01% to 3.51) and APT Afterpay Touch Group Limited (1.4 points or 4.97% to 29.6).
