The Australian Share Market had a stellar start to the week, with strong gains on Monday and Tuesday, but the rally fizzled today as investors took some money off the table.

This is despite a rally on Wall Street overnight, which saw the Dow add 200 plus points.

Back home in Australia, today the ASX All Ords ended the session 0.6% lower at 4932. Intra-day, the index actually hit a high of 4980.
