Only 2 weeks into 2016 and we have fallen more than an average move in the market over a fully 12 months. Welcome to 2016, as this is only the precursor to what the rest of the year has in mind for us. Having said that it’s not going to be all one way traffic as we will have our fair share of swings and roundabouts along the way. They say when something or someone finally gets their face ...
Read more about Australian Share Market – XJO Commentary 18 Jan 2016
If Santa Claus is coming to the market this year we will know this week, as this is make or break week. This week also sees a number of other important events taking place. The first being the FED and the long expected first interest rate rise in years (16th at 2.00pm EST in the US) followed by option expiry for the local index (XJO) and stocks, both on the same day, this Thursday 17th. We have XJO expiry with the opening match and then stock expiry with the closing match, so expect to see some volatility on the back of this, especially since it follows the FED decision only hours before.

The markets have been at the “Cross Roads” recently and two different paths have been taken. The US markets took one path and moved up over the last week however the XJO took the other path and moved down. Will these paths cross once more before the year is out, and if so, will it be one or both coming to meet the other?
