ASX 200 Price Forecast: Aussie Index Tags Resistance, Will it Rally?

ASX 200 Price Forecast: Aussie Index Tags Resistance, Will it Rally?

Peter Hanks, Analyst

ASX 200 Price Outlook:

  • The ASX 200 has been trapped between 6,200 and 5,800 since early June
  • Previous attacks on resistance situated around 6,200 have proven unsuccessful leading to reversals
  • Thus, the current trading price relative to the nearby technical barriers provides an intriguing landscape for technical traders

ASX 200 Price Forecast: Aussie Index Tags Resistance, Will it Rally?

The Australian ASX 200 has been trapped in a range since early June, fluctuating between resistance around 6,200 and support near 5,800. Despite several attacks on the 6,200 barrier, bullish appetite has seemingly evaporated each time before a bullish continuation can unfold. Now, price has returned to the same area of resistance after an almost unabated rally in October, bolstered by takeaways from the Reserve Bank of Australia’s recent policy meeting.

With a potential rate cut on the table and price at the topside of its longstanding range, the ASX 200 looks as though it could attempt a break out. On the other hand, previous rejections have helped highlight the influence held by the area and its ability to reverse attempts higher. Thus, there are arguments to be made for a bullish break out or an imminent reversal that would see the range remain intact.

As a result, there are two potential strategies that traders could employ when considering exposure in the ASX 200. Should bulls prevail and drive higher, further gains may materialize, effectively creating a break out trade scenario. Under this strategy, levels of invalidation would be set slightly beneath resistance and areas of interest would reside to the topside, possibly around subsequent resistance.

Conversely, a bearish reversal would fall into the realm of a range trading strategy in which levels of invalidation would be set slightly above resistance with areas of interest within the trading range – possibly near the lower bound.

While predicting a directional move can be difficult, the juncture at which the ASX 200 rests presents two distinct strategies that can be utilized depending on your bias. Either way, the index is positioned on a knife’s edge and a break – regardless of direction – may be imminent. In the meantime, follow @PeterHanksFX on Twitter for updates and analysis.
