Aussie 200 Index Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot 5 March 2015

Mixed sessions across Europe (up) and the US (down) provided a murky path for local traders to follow as the Aussie 200 Index continues to consolidate around the lows over the last two and a half weeks. Interesting to note the S&P500 is touching on six straight years without a 20 per cent pull back, which is the fourth longest since 1900. Both Gold and the Aussie Dollar continue to move in a narrow sideways band with pressure starting to build in both asset classes.​

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 gained 2.6 points or +0.04% on volume of $5.14 billion, closing ­­at 5904.2.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 Index managed to turn around a half a percent loss from the morning session and post a 2.6 point gain, as buyers swooped in around the 5870 level.
  • Current levels are pretty important from a technical point of view given all the support around the 5870-5900 level and further to this, we’ll need it to hold these levels to remain in the current steady uptrend. The daily chart below shows a lot of clear space below if current levels cannot hold.
  • Momentum continues to wane from the buy side and one can only imagine how many stop loss orders are sitting below the current market prices, with a view to give stocks some ‘wiggle room’ and capture any remaining uptrend that may be in store.
  • Support is current sitting at 5870-5880 and below that at 5850 with resistance above at 5915 and 5945-5955.
