Australian Share Market

The idea of a successful investment portfolio is appealing to everyone.

However, the extremely sensitive and volatile nature of the share market and stocks make it a risky bet.

We see moves in share prices hourly on the ASX. Sometimes, even the most uninformed investors can predict these movements from a mile off. But more often than you think, there are complete left-of-field surprises that catch even the most seasoned professionals off-guard.

Knowing what to watch

So, you want to be a responsible investor in the Australian share market? You’ll need more than just your instinct…

It also takes a well-trained set of eyes to know where to look for information. And a good set of well-trained ears, which can tune in on the worthwhile news…not just the stuff printed under punning headlines.

To put this in perspective…

Basically, when there’s a stock move it’s not enough to just notice the move. Anyone can do that, provided they use the right search terms.

To really be successful in this field, you need to have anticipated the move before it happened. Or, at the very least, you need to be able to recognise that these moves don’t happen by chance. There’s always something behind it.

The ASX

The ASX is a good place to start. It oversees all movements in listed Australian stock, and is constantly updating in real time. Companies are expected to keep the ASX informed in any share-affecting decisions the company makes, as well as share their financial reports and presentations.

It is the ultimate tool to educate investors. But it can look a bit confusing to the untrained eye.

And that’s where we come in.
