Aussie 200 Index Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot 21 January 2015

Indices in the US mounted a serious fight back, after spending the majority of the session nearly 1 per cent lower, managing to climb back into the black with the NASDAQ index up 0.44 per cent. It appears a combination of yesterday’s above expectation Chinese GDP data and a handful of commodities rising meant our index got off to a very robust start to the day, closing the session up 85.7 points. Volatility abounds over the next few trading sessions with the ECB announcement due out Thursday evening London time and the Greek Election on Sunday. Gold is currently sitting on the $1,300 per ounce mark.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 gained 85.7 points or +1.59% on volume of $4.20 billion, closing ­­at 5393.4.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 Index finally found a bit of life and as mentioned over the last couple of days, found support around 5300 and bounced from there.
  • Today was clearly a very positive day with the index rising a hearty 85.7 points but the other positive is our market closed right near its highs of the day, indicating that the bulls are in control and doing everything they can to push it higher.
  • Momentum has finally started to turn but is still a little stagnant, with the stochastic sitting just above the oversold level and now the bulls will need to fight the overhead resistance in order to push towards fresh 1 month highs and potentially 3 month highs if we can take out the 5560 level.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5365 and below that at 5340 and 5300. Resistance is firm and is sitting at 5400 and above that at 5430.
