My guess is that it's equivalent to "all good" in that case, like "How is it going, friend?" - "All good, thanks!"

Is it ever correct to say 'Alles is goed' for "Everything is going well" or can it only be "Alles gaat goed?"

It's unusual to say Alles is goed, maybe it can be used for some static situation, but right now I can't think of a situation in which I would use it. Alles gaat goed is a very common sentence. Gaat indicates the way it is going now in contrast to is which is a fixed state. In other words everything changes all the time, but this is the way it currently is going.

Could you ever say "Alles goed." as a statement? Perhaps in response to "Alles goed?", for example?
