How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 gained 28.6 points or +0.54% on volume of $3.3 billion, closing ­­at 5292.8.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 index has managed to hold on to the current levels of support, but only just, fighting back to day with a handy 28.6 point gain.
  • Fortunately for those still focused on the long side, the market held the 5270 support, touching it a couple of times intraday and rallying into the close.
  • One day doesn’t make a trend, but momentum to the downside is at least holding, for now and given the amount of price we’ve seen, we could see time catch up and a potential consolidation from here.
  • Support is currently at 5265 and then below that at 5230. Resistance continues to build at 5300 and then 5340.
