|Data for week commencing 25 March 2019|
The March quarter was three months of trading for the true believer stock player and it was fitting that Friday ended in the black or green, depending how you see it. The S&P/ASX 200 Index was up 5 points but over the week the market measure was down 14.5 points or 0.2% to finish at 6180.7.
But forget about the negative and let’s look at the performance of our market for the March quarter, as it was the best since the GFC-rebound year of 2009! It was the September quarter and I remember it fondly, as I started ‘talking up’ stocks after the US Government heavies and the Fed under Ben Bernanke orchestrated the rescue plan for the US economy, major banks, insurers and industrial players such as auto-makers.
