Aussie 200 Index Gainers & Losers plus Market Snapshot 8 December 2014

Last week’s positive close across European and US Indices, thanks to much stronger than expected non-farm payroll data, paved the way for Germany’s Dax index and the US Indices hitting all-time record closes and provided much hope for local Aussie 200 index traders, who pushed our index higher, but not above the key resistance point at 5430. This week we have Australian employment data, NAB Consumer Confidence and Chinese Inflation data to keep an eye on.

How did the Aussie market perform today?

S&P/ASX200 gained 37.4 points or +0.70% on volume of $3.66 billion, closing ­­at 5372.7.

Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 Index opened up strongly and fought its way back above Friday’s slight pullback, with today’s high reaching above both Thursday and Friday’s highs, with some sellers stepping in towards the end of the session.
  • When you view the chart below it is clear that the price action is well and truly favouring further upside but a cautious outlook is necessary, given the overhead resistance that we need to fight against.
  • The current zone is important to break out of, given that we’ll be looking at consecutive lower higher, is we cannot close above and break above the 5430 level, which is another 50 points away.
  • Support is current sitting at 5340 and then below that at 5300 with resistance above at 5400 and then above that at 5430.
