Share price index of the ASE reached its all time high during the year 2005 reaching 9348 point in 8/11/2005, and closed by the end of the year 2005 at 8192 points with 93 percent rise compared to the year 2004 closing.

This increase came as a result of the increase of all sectoral indices. Banking’s index went up by 134 percent, Insurance’s by 98 percent, Services’ by 78 percent, and Industry’s by 15 percent.

Trading volume increased by 345 percent compared to the year 2004 to reach JD16.9 billion; the number of shares traded also increased by 93 percent compared with the year 2004, reaching 2.6 billion shares. The number of transactions increased by 103 percent compared with the year 2004, reaching 2.4 million transactions. The turnover ratio for the ASE increased to 94 percent compared with 58 percent for the year 2004.

It is worth mentioning that all ASE performance indicators for last year are the highest since the Amman Financial Market was established in 1978. The ASE market capitalization increased by JD13.6 billion reaching JD26.7 billion, an increase of 105 percent over the end of 2004, and representing 327 percent of the GDP, which is considered to be a high ratio on the international level, this reflects the importance that the ASE plays in the national economy, Tarif added.

During 2005, the net investment of non-Jordanians showed a positive balance of JD413.4 million, compared to JD68.9 million during 2004. As a result, non-Jordanians ownership in the ASE market capitalization increased to 45.3 percent compared with 41.3 percent at the end of 2004. It is worth mentioning that the performance of the Jordanian shareholding companies was outstanding in the year 2005.
