I am quite often confused with the ups and downs on the stock market. When the Dow drops the ASX drops but quite often when the DOW goes up our shares quite often don’t rise the same percentage. Today is a typical example, The ASX has not operated since 1/4/2010 and the DOW has risen a total of 121.01 points. With this rise and all the good news from Europe and the US I thought we would have a day of increase but alas the major bank except the NAB are trading RED. I just don’t understand.
