ASX Top Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot – 16 September 2014

Some many macro themes playing out this week with the 2 day FOMC meeting, the Scottish referendum and commodities that seem destined to continue lower. The Aussie 200 entered nervous territory, or so it seems, falling another 28.1 points today, with all sectors but the Material sector feeling the pain.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 lost 28.1 points or -0.52% on volume of $4.1 billion, closing ­­at 5445.4.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 index has continued to break through several levels of support and this is becoming a regular and almost daily occurrence now, with today’s 28 point loss taking out support at 5470 and 5450.
  • Despite the fairly aggressive nature of this move down, it must be noted that the overall medium and long term trend is definitely up and this short term dip may be seen by others as a potential to get in at a lower price.
  • Bearish traders are likely continuing to ride the momentum to the downside with the market signalling a well and truly oversold condition with little sign of a bounce in place.
  • Support is currently at the current market price of 5430 and below that at 5400. There is now plenty of overhead resistance with 5450 support turning into resistance and then above that at 5485 and then 5500.
