On Monday, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) started the week on a subdued note. The benchmark index fell 0.15% to 7,292.2 points.

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

ASX 200 expected to edge lower

The Australian share market looks set for another subdued day on Tuesday. According to the latest SPI futures, the ASX 200 is expected to open the day 10 points or 0.15% lower this morning. This is a decent result considering the poor start to the week on Wall Street. In late trade the Dow Jones is down 1.5%, the S&P 500 is down 1.45%, and the Nasdaq is 1.6% lower.

Nine secures NRL rights

The Nine Entertainment Co Holdings Ltd (ASX: NEC) share price will be one to watch on Tuesday after it confirmed an agreement for NRL broadcast rights for the 2023 to 2027 seasons. Under this agreement, the live broadcast of NRL matches on Free-To-Air TV will be broadly in line with the current contract, albeit with an extra three matches, due to the expansion of the league. Nine is paying an average of $115 million per annum, which is in line with the prior agreement.

Oil prices fall

Energy producers such as Beach Energy Ltd (ASX: BPT) and Woodside Petroleum Limited (ASX: WPL) could have a difficult day after oil prices tumbled again. According to Bloomberg, the WTI crude oil price is down 3.6% to US$68.26 a barrel and the Brent crude oil price has fallen 3% to US$71.31 a barrel. Oil prices fell amid concerns over demand because of the spread of Omicron.

Gold price falls

Gold miners Evolution Mining Ltd (ASX: EVN) and Northern Star Resources Ltd (ASX: NST) could have a difficult day after the gold price dropped. According to CNBC, the spot gold price is down 0.7% to US$1,792.40 an ounce. The precious metal fell despite Wall Street tumbling overnight.

Westpac dividends

Today is payday for the shareholders of Westpac Banking Corp (ASX: WBC). Eligible shareholders can look forward to receiving the banking giant’s final dividend of FY 2021. Last month Australia’s oldest bank declared a fully franked final dividend of 60 cents per share. This equates to a 2.9% yield based on the current Westpac share price.
