Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 index was sold off yet again but it does appear to be finding some common ground as commodities start to firm and in some cases, head higher, such as the price of Gold overnight.
  • As the index has moved lower, it is clear to note that we are seeing some bullish divergence in the stochastics, especially from the most recent low on the 1st of December.
  • As it stands, there appears to be a possibility for a low below the 1st of December low to confirm the bullish divergence, or we could see a break higher from here as the stochastics isn’t faltering at current levels.
  • Support is starting to build and we see it sitting at 5230 and below that at 5200. Above the current level, we see resistance at 5280 and above that at 5300 and then the next level is 5330.
