Aussie 200 Index Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot 12 December 2014

US markets had a rush of blood early in the trading session overnight with positive retail sales figures inspiring traders to favour the bullish side, but that came a little undone towards the end of the session as profit takers stepped in. Our Aussie 200 index vainly attempted to head higher but with the negative commodity headwinds, was unable to, losing ground by 11.4 points by the end of Friday’s session. Plenty of economic data due out Friday evening after our market is closed including Chinese retail sales, industrial product and foreign investment figures.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 lost 11.4 points or -0.22% on volume of $4.67 billion, closing ­­at 5219.6.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 index did everything it could today to hold on to the double bottom technical formation sitting on the 5190-5200 level with signs of accumulative buying from yesterday’s low and a double bottom on the intraday chart as well.
  • As we have mentioned over the last 3 sessions, we seem to be finding a bottom with some potential ideal opportunity for those who are looking to buy the dip. Of course it wouldn’t hurt if commodity prices rebounded from here to help push our index higher as well.
  • Momentum is lacking at present. Technically our bullish divergence pattern has disappeared with today’s stochastic hitting below the previous low but there is still chance for a weak bullish divergence signal to play out. Failing this and our technical level at 5190 becomes very critical.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5190-5200 as mentioned above and below that at 5170. Resistance continues to build around 5240-5250 and above that at 5265 and 5290.
