Stock Market Guide to Australasian Stock Exchanges

While the geographic area known as Australasia - incorporating Australia, New Zealand, the island of New Guinea and some neighboring Pacific Ocean islands - is somewhat smaller than many of the world's continents, it still has plenty to offer. From the rugged, green mountains of New Zealand to the beautiful varied climates of Australia, Australasia is a place of both natural beauty and economic growth. Both Australia and New Zealand have enjoyed relative economic prosperity for some time now and as a result they both have relatively strong stock exchanges in which local and global contenders can vie for stocks, bonds, securities and other tradable commodities. This section of focuses mainly on the Australian Securities Exchange and the New Zealand Stock Exchange, as these are the biggest found in this geographical region.
