The All Ordinaries (XAO) is Australia’s secondary index behind the S&P/ASX 200 (XJO).
Once considered the barometer of the Australian Stock Market, the All Ords lost its status as Australia’s “premier” index with the introduction of Standard and Poor’s (S&P) Indices 14 years ago.
Even though it has been superseded, many older investors continue to use it as a benchmark and prefer it over the ASX 200 index.

All Ordinaries or ASX 200?
The All Ords contains the top 500 stocks by market capitalisation on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). As it contains mid-cap shares, many consider it a better representation of the Australian economy. Although the difference is minimal, many still believe the All Ords is a more accurate gauge of the Australian stock market.
