What you must bear in mind is that the companies listed on the US markets operate in a totally different fashion than the Oz markets.

In the US, profits are basically retained within the company and re-invested ... in Oz (due to our taxation system) the majority of profits are dispersed in dividends thereby reducing the capital profits base.

Therefore if you take dividends out of the equation there would be a similar hike in the All Ords to that of the US markets.
