Aussie 200 Index Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot 15 January 2015

Copper has managed to stop the free fall, following a 9 per cent price slump over the last 4 days as talk of a global recession begin to get thrown around. As a result, the US markets saw little joy overnight, steadily declining throughout the session, paving the way for a less than inspiring session for our Aussie 200 Index, which fell 22.2 points. Australia’s employment figures came out, adding a better than expected 37,400 jobs and dropping our headline unemployment rate to 6.1 per cent.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 lost 22.2 points or -0.42% on volume of $4.67 billion, closing ­­at 5331.4.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 Index has managed to hold on to current levels despite the successful sell-off in the US markets overnight. In addition, Copper has had a horror run, which has sent our largest miner, BHP Billiton, tumbling below $27.
  • We’ve had quite a bit of accumulative buying in the last two trading session as bargain hunters scoop up the index and many of the top shares are potentially bargain basement prices.
  • Momentum continues to run on empty and no definite direction can be found at the moment as market participants try and establish the bigger trends for 2015.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5310 and 5295-5300. Resistance continues to build and is sitting at 5360, 5375 and 5400.
