Momentum brake

August 2007
Money (Australia Edition);Aug2007, Issue 93, p81
The article presents a trend analysis of the economic conditions in Australia. Over the last few months to August 2007, the Australian stock exchange would surge forward and drop back, a pattern repeated a number of times. As a result the key market indices such as the S&P/ASX 200 and All Ordinaries, have fluctuated broadly between 6200 and 6400. Key factors behind the volatility include financial problems in the U.S. and a continuing debate about the future of commodity prices.
