ASX Market Indices Charts Review: XJO, XMM, XFJ, XNJ & XGD

March 19th, 2014 · 14 Comments

Over the last few months the Australian stock market has moved without any real conviction and appears to have settled within a range between 5100 and 5450. There has been no clear breakout towards 6000 nor has a major correction taken the market down to what I would describe as a buying range.  At this stage it appears difficult to spot any clear trend by looking at the ASX All Ords Index and/or S&P/ASX 200 so I will go one level lower, and look at some key sector ASX Market Indices.

2013 ASX Stock Market Charts Review

January 13th, 2014 · 5 Comments

By the end of 2013 the ASX All Ordinaries Index (XAO) & S&P/ASX 200 Index (XJO) both gained around 15% which was a healthy above average annual gain with the long term return for stocks being around 10%. But we need to keep the 2013 gains in perspective and not get carried away by some of the media hype and excitable comments being made by fund managers & analysts etc.

ASX All Ordinaries Index: Charts, Analysis & Trading Ranges

December 16th, 2013 · 5 Comments

At this time of year we are bombarded with the less than useful reflections of market analysts, brokers and finance columnists who use the benefit of hindsight to tell us mere mortals how they spotted the trends for the year and how easy it was to have profited from the stock market. I however will spare my readers this ordeal and calmly analyse charts of the ASX All Ordinaries Index going back 10 years. I will also look back on the long term outlook for the Australian stock market that I outlined in 2009 and review how events have unfolded since then.

Australian stocks rally but risks remain high

October 25th, 2013 · 20 Comments

Today the ASX All Ordinaries Index is up near the 5400 level with few signs that the current rally which started in July is about to fade. For market bulls this is a joyous occasion and for long term investors such as myself, it is a welcome change from years of the market edging sideways. However I will not be breaking out the champagne just yet as there are risks out there which seem to be getting over-looked.

Baltic Dry Index, ASX All Ordinaries, Gold & AMEX Charts

September 25th, 2013 · 13 Comments

There is a lot of confusing news & information swirling around regarding the markets these days. Depending on who you listen to either the U.S. economy is recovering or Ben Bernanke is the ultimate asset bubble creator. In China some see the economy in a state of planned transition whereas others (including myself), see it as a command economy fuelled by unsustainable credit growth. Meanwhile in Australia there appears to be some confusion regarding if the mining boom is over or just having a rest?

2013 Federal Election, All Ordinaries & Stock Market Outlook

September 8th, 2013 · 3 Comments

Well it’s over at last – the end of what has essentially been a three year election campaign in Australia and hopefully also the end of political instability; but that may be asking for too much. Tony Abbott will be the next Prime Minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd will now get on with doing what he does best what he does best – sulk in a corner and the Australian stock market will probably not do a lot.

What could be the next move for the ASX All Ordinaries Index?

March 27th, 2013 · 12 Comments

Since mid last year, the Australian stock market has staged a fairly impressive rally with the ASX All Ordinaries Index moving from a decidedly bearish level of down near 4000 to a bull market level of just under 5200 points. But of late the market has slipped back which will worry some investors, while others see this a simply a pause before the rally upwards continues.

The ASX All Ordinaries March Towards 5000 – Been There, Done That

February 12th, 2013 · 12 Comments

Recently every move upwards the stock market takes, no matter how slight, is greeted with almost ecstatic cries of joy from many analysts, finance journalists and assorted market watchers. It’s as if the ASX All Ordinaries was heading towards a new high and investors were being showered with money in the midst of a raging bull market that had no limits. Certainly there have been good returns of late for those investors who timed their entry into market almost perfectly, but for longer term investors it’s more of case of here we go again.

ASX All Ordinaries Index 2012 charts review.

January 2nd, 2013 · 3 Comments

In 2012 the Australian stock market finished the year higher with the ASX All Ordinaries Index posting a gain of around 12% to close at 4663.30 points.  Unsurprisingly much of the financial media excitedly churned out headlines suggesting stocks were soaring and many commentators focused on the annual rally being the best since 2009.  However if we look past the nonsensical rambling of much of the mainstream media the reality is  that All Ords has in reality simply moved back up to a level below where it finished at the end of 2009 and is still way below the pre-GFC market high.

ASX All Ordinaries Index – review of 5, 10 and 25 year charts

October 17th, 2012 · 1 Comment

The Australian stock market closed up again today with the ASX All Ordinaries Index finishing at 4550.90 points – a rise of 0.82% for the day.  The last couple of months have been generally kind to Australian stocks but we need to keep this recent stock market movement in perspective.

ASX All Ordinaries Index Charts & Trends – August 2012

August 19th, 2012 · 36 Comments

Now that the Australian stock market has staged a very modest rally over the last few weeks an assortment of finance writers, brokers & market watchers will begin to speculate if this rally is the start of something big.  Indeed if we focus on the short term the market has done fairly well over the last few weeks, however the longer term trend suggests that the Australian stock market is still stuck in a rut.

Stock charts review: ASX All Ords, AGK, DJS, WPL, NAB & LEI

June 21st, 2012 · 1 Comment

The last month or so has been quite a ride for Australian stock market investors with the ASX All Ordinaries Index falling from around 4500 points to around 4000 points.  The continuing economic woes in Europe, the economic slowdown in China and the stagnant U.S economy have worked to drag the share market down as have signs that the Australian domestic economy is showing signs of weakness.

Charts Review: S&P/ASX 200, JB Hi-Fi, ASX All Ords & QBE.

February 15th, 2012 · 3 Comments

It may appear to some investors that the Australian stock market has started 2012 in the same volatile manner as we have become use to over the last few years, however trading so far this year has been fairly calm.  An optimist might believe that this is an indication that the markets are finally settling down though I fear we are simply enjoying a period of calm before we enter a stormy phase again.

The ASX All Ordinaries and the Commodities Bubble.

October 5th, 2011 · 8 Comments

Prices for hard commodities such as copper, iron ore & coal have risen strongly over the past decade and are now trading well above their long term historical averages.  This in turn drove the ASX All Ordinaries Index to a bull market high in 2007 and has helped put some support under the market ever since.  But is it realistic to expect high commodities prices will keep propping up the Australian stock market?

A decade in review: the ASX All Ords, BHP, HVN, RIO, WOW & more.

August 29th, 2011 · 8 Comments

Often it is useful to step away from looking at the daily movements of the stock market and review what has happened over the last decade.  This won’t exactly tell investors which stocks will do well during the next 10 years, but it does show which trends have moved the market to where it is now.

When might the ASX All Ords pass the last bull market high?

July 25th, 2011 · 24 Comments

The Australian stock market is still a long way below the last market high reached in 2007 and so I can’t help wondering when we might see the ASX All Ordinaries reach a new market high.  Perhaps it will just be a few years time before the market recovers lost ground, or maybe it’s going to be a long wait before share market investors see stocks once again post gains year after year.

Why is the Australian stock market unable to rally?

May 3rd, 2011 · 4 Comments

Despite the best efforts of many analysts to talk up a stock market rally the Australian share market continues to move sideways with the ASX All Ordinaries and S&P/ASX 200 both unable push clear of the 5000 level.  But should this worry investors or is the market now simply reverting back to the long term trend?  Also what factors might be at play that are preventing a major market rally?

Charts review: big four Australian banks CBA, ANZ, NAB, WBC

March 7th, 2011 · 26 Comments

Well today the stock market correction that I mentioned was coming in February has certainly hit and the ASX All Ordinaries Index has fallen below the 5000 level yet again.  Is this latest share market correction something Australian stock market investors should worry about, or is it simply an over-reaction to global events which will have little long term impact on stocks and shares?
