All Ordinaries Index

The oldest stock index in Australia. Established in 1980, it tracks the 500 largest publicly-traded companies traded on the Australian Securities Exchange. It is weighted for market capitalization. Its importance has declined since the introduction of a second stock index (the S&P/ASX), but it nevertheless remains a benchmark for the performance of Australian equities.
