ASX Top Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot – 11 July 2014

Weak leads from the international bourses overnight, including a heavily drop on open for the US markets, were not enough to deter bullish traders on today’s ASX market, pushing our index higher, with only the Property Trust and Consumer Discretionary sectors in the red. US markets were hampered about concerns of the health of Portugal’s top listed bank, pushing the index immediately lower on open but markets managed to recover most of those early losses by the end of the session.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 gained 22.4 points or +0.41% on volume of $2 billion, closing ­­at 5486.8.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • Quite the turnaround on the Aussie 200 index today despite extremely weak leads from overseas, with our market rallying from 11am, putting on 50 points in the next 2 hours.
  • The candlestick pattern today was nearly a bullish engulfing formation, apart from yesterday’s lower low, which also coincides with a potential higher low, which is yet again another positive sign for the bulls.
  • If you take a look at the 100 period moving average on the daily chart you notice we have been bouncing off this level for the past couple of months going back to March. Now it is a matter of watching the overhead resistance levels to see if we can make new higher highs.
  • Support is sitting at 5485 and then down at 5455 with resistance at 5500 and then the next major resistance is at 5530 and if we can break that we’d see a new higher high.
