Aussie 200 Index Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot 12 February 2015

Mixed leads from overseas markets provided little direction for local traders as the all important Australian jobs data was released, printing at a much worse than expected negative 12,200 jobs. This sent the Aussie dollar tumbling below 0.7650 and the Aussie 200 index struggling to hold on to support. Gold also had a less than impressive session, losing ground and now trading at $1,220 per ounce.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 lost 25.5 points or -0.44% on volume of $5.88 billion, closing ­­at 5743.6.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 index has been unable to hold on to recent gains as it battled worse than expected jobs data and late afternoon profit taking.
  • Our index has enjoyed a stellar run and traders couldn’t resist locking in some of those gains, especially given we have been sitting in overbought for a few days now.
  • Tonight in the US will be interesting as several big names report plus the US indices are right on resistance, seemingly unable to break through easily. So we have a couple of potential headwinds to unfold before we see further blue sky territory on the ASX.
