ASX Top Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot – 26 September 2014

Apple shares took a large chunk out of investors’ confidence overnight and pushed global indices lower amidst geopolitical tensions and the underlying issue of China’s slowing economy. Locally our market fell a disappointing 68.8 points, with every sector in the red with Information Technology feeling the most heat, down 1.92 per cent.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 lost 68.8 points or -1.29% on volume of $5.3 billion, closing ­­at 5313.4.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 index was on a fast track down below key support levels following negative overseas leads and it is not uncommon for key support levels to be broken in this fashion.
  • Bargain hunters often accumulate orders around key support levels, buying off oversold levels and when you combine this with those feeling the pain from higher up, you can get a flurry of selling activity.
  • Momentum is clearly favouring the bears and the big question now is, is this part of a bigger correction with worse to come or is this part of a minor pull back that will consolidate and head higher once again?
  • Support has now been pushed down to lower levels and is sitting at 5300-5305 and then below that at 5260. Resistance is now at 5340 and above that at 5370 and will take some time to test those levels now.
