5 things you need to know about the Australian sharemarket today
Welcome to Monday and the start of a new week. Here are the five things I'm looking at today on the Australian sharemarket. The S&P/ ASX 200 Index (Index: ^AXJO) (ASX: XJO) has opened down 0.7%, following the lead of Wall Street on Friday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 0.4%, while the broader S&P 500 lost 0.6%. The culprit is weak China industrial output growth . August data was the weakest since the global financial crisis, and suggests China is slowing faster than expected. Steel maker and iron ore producer Arrium Ltd (ASX: ARI) ex-OneSteel is raising $754 million from investors by way of a renounceable rights issue and a smaller placement. The company says the funds will be used to pay down debt. The company notes that the iron ore price has fallen to five-year lows, and "there is increased uncertainty over the extent and timing of recovery". That assumes the iron ore price will recover off course, and not fall further.Shares in Arrium will be suspended whilst the institutional offer and placement are undertaken. But with the new shares being offered at 48 cents, a large discount to the last traded price of 65 cents, shares are likely to sink when the company resumes trading.As far back as February 2013, we were warning investors that we weren't interested in the company. At the time, Arrium's shares were trading at around $1.25, roughly double the current price. Foxtel is reported to have considered a joint takeover bid for troubled free-to-air broadcaster Ten Network Holdings Limited (ASX: TEN), according to the Australian Financial Review (AFR). Foxtel is jointly owned by News Corporation (ASX: NWS) and Telstra Corporation (ASX: TLS). The AFR says the deal would've sparked controversy, with concerns Ten would've gained too much power, particularly in markets such as sports broadcasting rights.That may not be the end of the speculation over Ten either. It almost feels like a fait acommpli that Ten will merge or be taken over. Tweet of the Day.

5 things you need to know about the Australian sharemarket today
"We are in some kind of corrective phase", but added, "I think we're still in a fundamental bull market." The Australian dollar has fallen again and is now trading at US 90.98 cents. Now may be the best time to get into some stocks that will benefit from the falling dollar, before it crashes further. If you're looking for ideas, here's an article we wrote last week looking at some opportunities. Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS) is reported to be considering rolling out its own fibre broadband network to compete directly with NBN Co. That comes as TPG Telecom Limited (ASX: TPM) received the go ahead from the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC) to roll out fibre-to-the-basement of around 500,000 apartments in our major capital cities. NBN Co, the company rolling out the National Broadband Network is vehemently opposed to TPG and Telstra rolling out a competing offering - saying it could break its business case.Still, it might be a good idea to allow telcos to roll out fibre where the market demands and NBN Co to deliver the rest.
