Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 Index managed to move above the critical resistance point, closing above 5550 off the back of extreme strength across the banks and a few of the miners starting to rebound.
  • Technically we have now moved into new recent highs, not seen since the 5th of September last year, providing a real interest among the bulls to see if new 6 year highs are possible in 2015.
  • Momentum continues to favour the bulls but we are now getting fairly stretched to the upside with the likes of National Australia Bank (ASX:NAB) up 13.95%, and Macquarie Bank (ASX:MQG) up 13.74% and Commonwealth Bank (ASX:CBA) up 8.1% since recent lows.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5570 and below that at 5550 and 5500 with resistance above at 5620 and 5640.
