Aussie 200 Index Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot 2 March 2015

The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) cut their base interest rate over the weekend by 0.25 per cent, causing the Aussie Dollar to grind lower throughout the day and the Aussie 200 Index to break out above resistance and hit the highest price since 2008 (again). China is very keen to stimulate their economy and will do everything they can to get the dollars flowing back into their economy. In addition to this the HSBC Chinese Manufacturing PMI came in slightly better than expected at 50.7 versus analysts’ expectations of 50.1. Gold has also continued to track higher, sitting around the $1,220 per ounce level.​

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 gained 30.1 points or +0.51% on volume of $4.97 billion, closing ­­at 5958.9.

Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 Index enjoyed some positive fundamental news, allowing the technical traders enough reason to take the index clearly above recent resistance, breaking out and hitting an intraday high of 5986.5.
  • Unfortunately the buying enthusiasm dried up, causing our index to pull-back 34 points from that high as the profit taking started to intensify.
  • On the daily chart we notice the bullish ascending triangle pattern that did in fact break out today but also note the bearish divergence that continues to build as our market grinds higher.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5945 – 5950 and below that at 5925 and then 5900 with resistance at 5970 and today’s high at 5986.5.
