Aussie 200 Index Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot 25 November 2014

Medibank Private debuted on the Australia Stock Exchange today, providing a seven per cent boost to the original public offering, but was unable to hold on to the intraday highs, much like the Aussie 200 index which close the day down 27 points, despite the repeated record highs on the US bourses overnight. The Materials sector was the worst hit, falling 1.7 per cent, giving back some of the impressive gains from Monday’s trading.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 lost 27 points or -0.51% on volume of $7.22 billion, closing ­­at 5334.8.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 index had quite the roller coaster ride today with the Medibank Private float hitting our markets at 12pm and adding over $1billion in trading volume to the exchange with the share price rising a handy 7 per cent from the initial public offering.
  • Momentum from the international bourses and our excellent Monday trading, never carried across to our local market with sellers rushing the gates and pushing the index down a hefty 60 points from the open, challenging the key 5300 mark, before value was noticed, pushing the index up off the lows, but still down 27 points on the day.
  • Once again we note quite a bit of accumulative buying off these lows, indicating that the bulls are doing everything they can to gain control. The disparity between the US markets and our local market is staggering and if we ever get the commodity prices to rebound, it could be quite the bounce on our local index.
  • Support is currently sitting near the current price at 5315 and below that at 5300 with resistance overhead at 5370 and above that at 5400.
