Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 index has managed a solid fight back from last week’s sell-off, pushing ahead for the third day in a row and closing above the key 5300 level substantially. This was definitely a possible consolidation period, but we’ve navigated this zone with ease, but we’re not out of the woods just yet.
  • Following the positive leads in the US, our market did jump out of the gates, to hit the intraday high of 5375 by noon, before profit takers stepped in to push our index back down 30 points, before the last afternoon rally following some solid retail numbers.
  • We are at a critical point with the potential for a lower high, if we cannot sustain the momentum to the upside, with the next level at 5420 very important. All going well the recent momentum can continue before we reach the overbought level on the stochastics.
  • Support is currently sitting at 5340 and below that at 5310 with resistance overhead at 5370 and then at 5400.
