Today, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) took a trip to the downside amid key data from the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA). Once again, RBA governor Philip Lowe rejected forecasts that the central bank will look to raise rates next year. Additionally, the jobs report beat expectations as 366,000 jobs were added in November. Despite this, the benchmark index finished 0.43% lower at 7,295.7 points.

The Australian share market was pulled in two different directions today, with the laggards winning out. While ASX-listed tech shares largely followed in the footsteps of their US-listed counterparts, other sectors struggled. The worst offending was the health care sector. Shares in CSL Limited (ASX: CSL) brought down the market with its 8.1% fall.
