Welcome to a new edition of Stock Take, our weekly share market wrap up. Let’s have a look at how the share market has been performing recently.

Market Overview

It now seems that the New Zealand market has found its support level, after a 10-week decline and a peak that occurred nearly 12 months ago. The 12,600 level (as seen in the graph below), is one that the index has recovered from on several occasions this year and it is now recovering from this once again.

Latest figures showing record prices for milk should help underpin the New Zealand economy despite the disruptive impact of lockdowns and there is a good chance that our market will enjoy the typical December ‘Santa rally’ that often happens in the lead up to Christmas.
