The Australian stock market has been on a tear over the past year, but the S&P500’s value has only just hit a record high of $2.35 trillion.
This is due to a combination of strong earnings growth and a low cost of capital.
The S&s target has been set to average 2,400 points over the next two years, which is about 3.5% above its peak value in January 2018.
But the markets performance over the last year has been very different.
While there have been plenty of positive developments for the market, the outlook is less rosy.
According to Moody’s Investors Service, Australia’s growth is slowing, and the Government is looking to cut tax rates to try and offset this.
That’s not good news for savers and investors, but it is not bad news for investors.
If you were a small investor back in January, you could be forgiven for wondering how you were going to manage your money when you were in a position like that.
With that in mind, here’s what you need to know about the market and how it could perform over the coming months.
What is the S &p500?
The chart below breaks down the current value of the S and P500 index, which measures the performance of the top 10 Australian shares, according to Thomson Reuters data.
In other words, the S is a measure of the performance over a period of time, while the P is the value of a company over that time.

Why do the S300 and S500 indexes have such different valuations?
There are a few different reasons why the S400 index has such a high price tag compared to the S250, S500 and S1000 indexes.
Firstly, the benchmark S300 index is valued by a broker.
This means that a lot of people are buying and selling S300 shares on the spot market.
Secondly, there is an ongoing dispute between the brokerage and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission over who is holding the shares, which may cause the prices of S300 to fall.
Lastly, there are some high-profile corporate mergers and acquisitions in Australia, such as the acquisition of AGL from Woolworths, and a possible deal with Netflix.
How much do you need for an investment?
For the most part, investors need to have a minimum investment of $5,000 per year.
This is a bit lower than many of the other S&ams target, and you could even argue that the market has had a relatively weak start to 2017.
However, the market is still expected to grow over the long term, so you should not expect to be investing at this level until 2020 or 2021.
A low interest rate environment is also important to consider when you’re looking at the market.
There is a high likelihood that the S550 will also be on a positive trajectory, and will likely rise from $4,000 to $5.50 per share in the coming years.
Is the S350 and S600 indexes still the way to go?
Both the S1000 and S350 indexes are in a bubble, with the S2000 and S400 indices being at a similar level.
It is worth noting that both the S750 and S800 indices are currently trading above their targets, so they are not a bad investment.
Which stocks are cheap or cheap-to-sell?
While the S450 is still the best-performing index, the other indices are starting to move into the low end of the price scale.
Here’s a breakdown of the average prices of the 10 largest listed companies in the S600 and S550 indexes.
