Australian sector watch


Looking over the charts

  • The Aussie 200 index was unable to hold on to recent momentum, vainly attempting to push above resistance at 5400 and 5430, but succumbing to global weakness, as sellers took over, pushing our index below several key support levels.
  • The biggest cause for concern on this pull-back is that it is coming off several lower highs, dating back to the 21st of August 2014 and we have now hit our 4th consecutive lower high. This is a big cause for concern.
  • Momentum has definitely changed in the last 24 hours as we note quite a bit of distributive selling from Monday’s high plus the large sell-off today, with support at 5275 looking vulnerable.
  • Support is current sitting at 5270 and below at 5250 with resistance starting to build (once again) at 5300 and above that at 5330.
