  • ASX 200 Material Index was 0.38% up today and the index closed at 16,913.60 points.
  • Mining companies like Core Lithium, Sayona Mining, and Pilbara closed in green today.

Australia's stock market gained on Thursday (June 16), powered by financials and technology sectors, as investors hailed the US Federal Reserve's decision to raise interest rates by a quarter of a percentage point.

Even though iron ore prices fell, mining stocks gained, as upbeat economic data from top consumer China pushed copper and aluminium prices higher in May. Behemoths like BHP Group (ASX:BHP) and Rio Tinto (ASX:RIO) advanced around 0.25% and 0.67%, respectively.

However, the market closed in the red today with the ASX 200 Index losing 0.15% to close at 6,591.10 points. While the ASX 200 Material Index was 0.38% up and closed at 16,913.60 points.
