Both Aussie bond benchmark contracts...>

AUSSIE BONDS: Both Aussie bond benchmark contracts opened SFE higher and have
ended flat. The 3-Year contract was last flat at 97.850 after in this session
hitting its highest level this week at 97.870, the 10-Year was last flat at
97.170 after also peaking to its highest level this week at 97.200. The
contracts both began to come down after some large sales made in TYZ7 and YMZ7
but ended flat. 
- The bid at the start of SFE was runoff from SYCOM where Aussie bonds moved
higher with Tsy's, investors sought safe-havens in the afternoon amid afternoon
safe-haven buying on Iran, N. Korea worries. USGSG could not confirm if N. Korea
earthquake was manmade or not (experts have said it wasn't manmade since,) and
President Trump announces plan for Iran Nuclear Deal Friday 12:45pm ET. 
- Next week we look to Tuesday's RBA minutes where analysts at RBC have said
they expect to hear more detail on the RBA's thinking on business investment and
conditions as the non-mining capex outlook improves. Thursday we have labour
data which last month came out strong.
