Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 Index has carried forward recent positive momentum after finding support at 5300 earlier in the week and has had three very positive closes in a row.
  • Those in the bullish camp will be rejoicing, although they will be tested at current levels just shy of 5500, as it is sitting on a double top.
  • With recent bullish closes, it would not surprise anyone if this momentum continues and we see a firm close above 5500.
  • On the hourly chart we notice text-book perfect higher lows and higher highs and support is sitting at 5465 and below that at 5430 and 5400 with resistance above at 5500-5507 and then a little bit of blue sky till 5550.
