Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 index had another incredible low volatility day, oscillating in an extremely narrow 16 point range as volatility shrinks down to 36 points per day.
  • We seem to be at a key juncture on the Aussie 200 with our market having a short term bias towards the negative but in the midst of a solid medium to long term uptrend. Bears may win the short term battle whilst bulls continue to identify their preferred ‘buy-the-dip’ zones on any pullback.
  • Day traders are likely to be trying to find other markets at present with such narrow ranges but hopefully next we’ll see some better movement as more importantly economic data starts flowing.
  • Support is sitting at 5600 initially and below that we have 5585. Resistance is sitting at 5645 around the recent consolidation levels and then 5684, which are the most recent highs.
