I snipped this on the last trading day of the year as part of a year in review video I am doing.
The chart compares the relative performance of the following.
All Ords (^AORD)
Nasdaq Composite (^IXIC)
Hang Seng (^HSI)
Its important to note that these are relative performances so it can be a bit misleading but what it does highlight is the need for two things. Firstly, a diversified approach to index trading. Secondly, patience, for a good part of the year nothing happened. It was only in the last quarter that markets really began to move.
