Aussie 200 Index Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot 13 January 2015

Momentum in the slide in Crude Oil prices continues unabated as the price of WTI Crude fell an astonishing 5 per cent to $46.07 a barrel in overnight trading, leaving our energy sector down a massive 1.73 per cent, providing an insurmountable road block for our Aussie Index, which fell 18 points or 0.3 per cent. Gold was a minor beacon of hope as it rose to fresh 3 month highs with our Aussie Dollar consolidating around 0.8160.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 lost 18 points or -0.33% on volume of $3.11 billion, closing ­­at 5404.7.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • ​The Aussie 200 Index fell a quick-fire 45 points on the open following the desperately weak leads on the international bourses but managed to find some composure some 3 hours later, testing the previous day’s close.
  • Continuing on from yesterday’s comments, we are still in somewhat of a ‘no-man’s land’ as our index moves from intraday high to intraday low, solidifying the common support and resistance lines.
  • With international markets in fairly solid uptrends, we are just waiting for a change of fortune around the key commodities before our market may begin to find some footing and charge forward.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5370 and below that at 5350 with resistance above at 5400, 5420 and 5445.
