The GPS - Melbourne Institute Leading Index of Shareholder Confidence™

Report Description

The Index is a summary balance measure of shareholders current and expected confidence in the Australian share market. The measure enables Australian share investors to compare their own expectations, preferences and instincts about shares to that of their fellow investors. The Index is based on shareholders assessment of three factors: returns, volatility and trading intentions (whether to buy or sell). The Index is designed for easy interpretation: a value below 100 is suggestive of bearish sentiments while a value above 100 is suggestive of bullish sentiments.

The first survey was conducted during March 2009 and the second survey was conducted during the first week of May 2009. Each survey was conducted over the telephone and is based on 1,600 respondents aged 18 years and over, across Australia, who directly own shares in companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange.
