[Video] Aussie Market, US and Emerging Market Indices

Aussie Stock Market VS US Share Market

In today’s video update Kris looks at the 10-year performance of the Aussie market against the US and emerging market indices. The conclusion may not surprise you…

In this video you will learn:

  • The Aussie ASX 200 has lagged the US markets on fears the Emerging Markets aren’t going to grow as much as they had previously.
  • Falls in commodity prices have spooked Australian markets and has impacted the Aussie market and Emerging market economies.
  • US S&P500 is currently above record highs from back in 2007
  • With slower world growth, the US Stock Market may not be able to maintain the new record high.


Hi Kris Sayce here back for another video update.

Today i want to show you this one chart but I’ve got three indices on here.

The white line is the Aussie ASX200, The yellow line is the emerging markets  index and the Green Line is the US S&P 500.

As you can see both the white line and the yellow lines are long way below their highs that they reached back in 2007 the US market on the other hand is a long way above the 2007 high. Why is that or why is the the Aussie market lagged the U.S?

A lot of that to do of course is some fears that the emerging markets aren’t going to grow as much as they had previously and also with the Australian economies correlation with commodity prices the big fall in a lot of the commodities iron ore price especially over the past few years is impacted on this.

So what does this mean for the Aussie market and emerging market economies?

Well it could mean that they still have a long way to go but we’re more cautious we look at this is a sign of trouble the US market is still at a record high and with slower world growth we think its stock markets could fall over the next months and years ahead so we’re going to keep a close eye on this and see where things go.

Thanks for watching.
