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

Jobs data in the US had quite the negative impact on the markets as the quality of the jobs was lacking, despite the 252,000 jobs added and the reduction in the headline number to 5.6 percent, with the Dow falling 170.5 points on Friday’s session. This sucked all the momentum out of the last few trading sessions and saw the Aussie 200 index pull back some 42.9 points with all sectors in the red except for Utilities, which were up a modest 3.4 points.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 lost 42.9 points or -0.79% on volume of $2.52 billion, closing ­­at 5422.7.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • ‚ÄčThe Aussie 200 Index is currently stuck in a trendless zone with plenty of support and resistance levels on both sides, making it tough to identify a clear bullish or bearish phase ahead.
  • Friday’s pullback made a notable shooting star candlestick formation at the top of the recent uptrend and today’s doji star is doing little to convince either party, as indecision sets in.
  • The recent high on the 29th of December looked positive as it broke above previous highs and then the pullback confirmed a higher low on the 7th of January, but struggling to break above the recent high is something we will need to keep a close eye on.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5400-5405 and below that at 5370 with resistance above at 5445, 5460 and above that at 5507.
