Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 cash index jumped impressively following Friday’s positive session and better than expected news out of the US of A and sits at a critical junction for a potential rally higher or push lower.
  • 5300-5350 is a big area for potential consolidation on the Aussie 200 index and could prove to be the tipping point for a move in either direction. If commodity markets, including Crude Oil, Gold and Iron Ore start to rally from here, then we are likely to see a push higher on our local index.
  • In the midst of the short-medium term downtrend, our market has managed to fight back to the overbought area (surprisingly) and is now hitting a lower high combined with an overbought signal, which is generally a bearish sign and one we’ll be keeping an eye on going forward.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5300-5310 and below that at 5270 with resistance at today’s high of 5340 and above that at 5370.
