Aussie 200 Index Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot 3 March 2015

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) surprised the market today by not cutting the bench mark interest rate and leaving it on hold at 2.25 per cent, citing strength across the Melbourne and Sydney property market as one of the key reasons for their stance. However, going forward, Glenn Stevens has highlighted an easing stance, so expect some volatility across the Aussie Dollar over the next few months. The Aussie Dollar leapt over 60 pips on the news and the Aussie 200 index fell around 50 points as the banking sector saw some profit taking.​

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 lost 25 points or -0.42% on volume of $5.54 billion, closing ­­at 5933.9.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 Index reacted negatively to today’s RBA rates announcement, falling swiftly on the news before steadying with some bargain hunters accumulating at the lower levels.
  • Today’s daily candle shows an outside day at the top of the market whereby the highs and lows exceed the previous days candle and provides a slight bearish tone in the short term.
  • Markets will take a bit of time to digest the forward guidance from the RBA and what that means for the key players over the next few months, but momentum has moved slightly to the negative in the very short term as we note the bearish divergence on the stochastic indicator.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5900 and below that at 5980 with resistance starting to build at 5940-5945 and above that at 5975 and 5995.
