ASX Top Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot – 14 October 2014

The final hour of trading on the Dow Jones Monday night overnight saw a 200+ point sell-off on the Dow Jones, which didn’t bode well for the local Aussie market, however, fortunes changed quickly as Gold and Iron Ore prices found some firmer ground, providing the necessary stimulus for our local miners to rally into the close, with our market posting a handy 51.9 point gain on the day.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 gained 51.9 points or +1.00% on volume of $4.5 billion, closing ­­at 5207.4.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 Index continues to trade in the most volatile period since July 2013, with today’s market action favouring the bull’s, with plenty of potential short covering going on and perhaps a bit of bargain hunting.
  • On the intraday chart, the Aussie index initially sold off 25 points before rallying nearly 90 points over the next 3 hours before consolidating those gains for the remainder of the session, providing a bullish engulfing pattern on the daily chart as shown below.
  • Normally at this stage we’d start to see a bullish divergence opening up but the stochastics remains flat in the oversold region with no hint of that sign, so now its more a matter of monitor resistance levels for key breaks to the upside.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5140 and then 5120 and 5100 and resistance is at 5200 and then beyond that at 5125, but be mindful of short covering pushing through overhead resistance points quickly.
