April was a great month for the Australian Share market with the S&P/ASX All Ord rising 3.92% over the period. Traditionally the month is a strong month for the share market as the end of financial year approaches. A great deal of the positive momentum can also be attributed to low interest rates, market stimulus and a rebound of economic activity. Materials was the best performing sector, driven largely by stronger metal prices and a slightly weaker US dollar. Technology also did well, due to by a decline in Australian bond yields.
