On Monday, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) started the week with a very strong gain. The benchmark index rose 1.2% to 6,687.1 points.

Will the market be able to build on this on Tuesday? Here are five things to watch:

ASX 200 expected to fall

The Australian share market is expected to open the day lower on Tuesday following a poor start to the week on Wall Street. According to the latest SPI futures, the ASX 200 is poised to open the day 26 points or 0.4% lower. On Wall Street the Dow Jones dropped 0.7%, the S&P 500 fell 0.85%, and the NASDAQ tumbled 0.8%. A late selloff wiped out some strong intraday gains.

ANZ rated neutral

Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd (ASX: ANZ) shares remain neutral rated at Goldman Sachs following its agreement to acquire the banking operations of Suncorp Group Ltd (ASX: SUN). However, with a price target of $27.44, Goldman sees significant upside for ANZ’s shares. It commented: “While the deal somewhat improves ANZ’s lack of scale in domestic retail/commercial banking, we see operational risk as elevated.”

Oil prices jump

It could be a very good day for energy producers such as Beach Energy Ltd (ASX: BPT) and Santos Ltd (ASX: STO) after oil prices jumped overnight. According to Bloomberg, the WTI crude oil price is up 4.7% to US$102.17 a barrel and the Brent crude oil price has risen 4.45% to US$105.68 a barrel. Concerns about Russia’s gas supply to Europe boosted prices.

BHP’s Q4 update

The BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP) share price will be one to watch on Tuesday when the mining giant releases its fourth quarter update. The Big Australian is guiding to full-year production of 249Mt to 259Mt for iron ore, 1,570kt to 1,620kt for copper, and 38Mt to 41Mt for metallurgical coal.

Gold price rises

Gold miners Evolution Mining Ltd (ASX: EVN) and Regis Resources Limited (ASX: RRL) will be on watch after the gold price edged higher overnight. According to CNBC, the spot gold price is up 0.2% to US$1,706.7 an ounce. A softer US dollar gave the precious metal a lift.
