Aussie share market bulls now have company

Ric Spooner (Chief Market Analyst, CMC Markets) 20/10/2014 | Today, Australian investors will not have to go it alone buying stocks as they did for much of last week. Bargain hunters this morning will be supported by the morale boosting encouragement of a 3% turnaround in the German Dax and a 264 point rally in the Dow Jones.
