An interesting illustration from CNN of the performance of the S&P 500 under each U.S. President beginning with Ronald Reagan.
What is perhaps most interesting is that the S&P 500 performed best under the two Democrat Presidents, who are traditionally seen as more pro-government (higher taxes)...
First post to the aussie stock forum. I've spent a few hours searching and reading but still felt the need to drop my thread here. Hoping to learn and contribute where I can in the future.
I wish to open 2 positions in the S&P 500 (5 year and 15+ year) but am unsure whether to hedge to...
I was thinking of investing in some ETF's which I mentioned to a friend of mine. He told me that he invested in ASX:IVV last December and has just sold them because the return did not match the index - it was in fact something like 5% below the index, which seems strange to me. My...
Just a quick something I stumbled on recently that was interesting.
A recent study by three professors at Purdue’s Krannert School of Management has shown how founder-led companies can outperform the broader market index.
A founder-led company, defined as companies where the founder still...
This turned out to be controversial according to comments in Twitter after this article. I believe there was a non-confirned head and shoulders. Others believe that there was none in the first place. Some others still say that there was one but it was of continuation type.
Sounds like a newbie question but still:
Let's take ASX:IVV, an ETF that tracks S&P 500. The ETF itself is traded within ASX trading hours, and the price is obviously determined by those who buy and sell. On the other hand, stocks that compose S&P 500 are traded within the U.S. trading hours...
Quick question for anyone trading the futures markets. On ninja trader while i sim trade the emini sp500, I do well on strong trending markets with strong momentum breakouts.
I try to figure out what type of market its going to be that day but i keep getting hammered when the contract volume...
The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust seeks to provide investment results that, before expenses, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the S&P 500 Index.
It's never very subtle but I haven't seen such blatant market manipulation for a long time.
I'm referring to the night of the 15-16 Oct where the APZ4 futures followed the Yo Yo of US market (15th Oct) and then on the 16th Oct the same Yo Yo index pattern was repeated during the ASX trading...
I was wondering if anyone knows where l can get historical charting data with indicators, going back at leasat 20 years on s&p500 and Nasdaq? Would like to perform some technical back testing but am unable to find a platform where l can perform this. I can easily get it on the forex but...
The Dividend Aristocrats are S&P 500 constituents that have increased their dividend payouts for 25 consecutive years.
Does anybody know of a similar listing for Australian listed companies?
Well, there was a nice RUN UP since november 2012
but now, only a few days ago, the summation charts or market breadth have switched over to a SELL or SELL RALLIES signal, and if you have a look at the USD chart, its obvious that right now, money is coming out of the market, and into USD and...

Looking at the breadth charts it is pretty interesting that the charts are pointing to some nice up coming in the next few weeks I think.
