Chart: The Commonwealth Bank of Australia (ASX:CBA) share price just fell below $69


The Commonwealth Bank of Australia (ASX:CBA) share price has dropped a further 49 cents or 0.7 per cent to trade at $68.88 in Tuesday morning trade.

This comes a few weeks after CBA shares dipped below $70, the first times they’d done so since September 2016, just before it and the other bank shares took off after Donald Trump’s shock election victory.

In May last year, the CBA share price traded above $85, meaning it has fallen almost 19 per cent in the last 13 months.

You have to go all the way back to March 2013 for when the CBA share price first broke through $70. Dividends aside, the CBA share price has now gone nowhere for the past 5 years.

Last month, the Commonwealth Bank share price fell after its third quarter trading update revealed home loan arrears rose as borrowers struggled with stagnant wage growth and the rising cost of living.
