Disclaimer. After nearly 40 years managing money for some of the largest life offices and investment managers in the world, I think I have something to offer. These days I'm retired, and I can't by law give you advice. While I do make mistakes, I try hard to do my analysis thoroughly, and to make sure my data are correct (old habits die hard!) Also, don't ask me why I called it "Volewica". It's too late, now.

BTW, clicking on most charts will produce the original-sized, i.e., bigger version.

Is our market getting a bit toppy?

Close to previous (though not record) highs.  Overbought.  And results season coming up, which is likely to be a bit soggy.


  1. I'm sorry, but I don't know the lingo. What are ORDS? Durable goods ORDers? I infer from your comment that it/they are related to equity prices, since they would fall in response to middling or weak earnings news. Also, is this Australian data or US data or global data?

  2. It's the Australian All Ordinaries index, as in all ordinary shares, i.e., excluding preference shares, convertibles, etc. It's Oz's equivalent to the US S&P500.

    I talk about the world, because Oz is so strongly influenced by it, but I always talk about Oz too!
