    I've seen the news where they show you the all ords and currency rates etc etc but I never paid attention to it.

    What is all ords and what does it mean when it goes up and down on the charts? How does it affect your investment/shares?

    On the chart there are bottom numbers of 10, 12, 14, 16 and on the side there's 4870, 4880, 4890, 4900, 4910, 4920. What do these numbers represent?

    I know this is another silly question of mine, hopefully it wont take to long to explain to a noob like me.

    Thank in advance guys.:)

    Questions like this on an investment or share forum give the appearance of you having a lend of us, but I will treat them as serious.

    For questions like this you will find initial answers when you google.

    For example from Investopedia

    The All-Ordinaries Index is market weighted and includes over 300 companies. For a company to be included in the index, they must meet the requirements established by the ASX. For example, a stock must have a market value of over 0.2% of all equities listed on the exchange. Furthermore, the stock must be liquid, with a monthly turnover of 0.5% of its total outstanding shares. The ASX rebalances the index each month, ensuring companies still meet these requirements.

    All the details including the constituents are on the S&P site which can also be found by googling.


    Bottom axis is time of day and vertical axis is the index value.
