Looking over the charts

  • ​​ ​The Aussie 200 Index has maintained its upward momentum among a pretty turbulent week, with German employment data sending the DAX index reeling overnight before bouncing, providing an incredible 250 point move down and 250 point move up. When you add Gold, Silver, Brent and Copper falling, then you start to see how strong the Aussie market actually is.
  • Today’s candle is fairly neutral and is not giving any clues for either the bulls or the bears as to the next move but it can definitely be said that the market continues to close higher with new recent highs being hit.
  • Momentum is starting to wane a little but if the markets were truly weak, it would be highly likely to see some bearish divergence at these levels, yet it hasn’t happened. In addition the top 50 stocks continue to show strength, hitting recent higher highs.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5490 and below that at 5460, especially on the hourly chart with resistance sitting at 5510 and above that at 5530.
