Aussie 200 Index Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot 28 November 2014

The OPEC meeting in Vienna on Thursday night provided a sombre outlook for Crude Oil bulls, as the decision was clearly laid down that production levels would not be lowered (30 million barrels of oil per day), despite the perceived glut of oil currently stockpiled around the world, sending the price of oil down over six per cent and wiping off hundreds of millions of dollars off our key energy stocks. The Aussie 200 Index finished the day down 87.9 points with the Energy sector plummeting an incredible 8.27%.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 lost 87.9 points or -1.65% on volume of $6 billion, closing ­­at 5313.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 Index seemingly defied gravity yesterday as concerns about the OPEC meeting and commodity prices fell overnight, yet our index remained steadfast, but not so much today. Today saw key support levels broken and then some, as our largest energy stocks came under intense selling pressure.
  • If you thought the market was already difficult to read then today wouldn’t be providing too much help on that front either. After several days of buying up the lows and then a mini rally higher, the bears took control and have now pushed our index to nearly close below the key level of 5320.
  • Yesterday we mentioned that momentum was seemingly stuck in ‘no-man’s land’ and now we’re starting to see the true picture of where the momentum is. Surprisingly, if we can hold above 5300, then there is a firm possibility that we could push higher from the next bout of selling.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5300-5310 and then below that at 5280 with resistance really starting to build at 5340 and above that at 5370 and then 5400.
