AUS200 Technical Analysis: Rally Challenged at Resistance Level

AUS200 Technical Analysis: Rally Challenged at Resistance Level

Nathalie Huynh, Contributor


Talking Points:

  • AUS 200 Strategy: Cautious of consolidation while resistance level holds
  • Index would return to September- January range after a clean break above
  • 20-day MA and resistance are around 4998. Support is 4859.9

AUS 200 is testing strong resistance level of 4998 on a fourth session. 20-day moving average descended to the proximity at 4995, making topside extensions even harder. A clean break above this area would bring the ASX index back to its medium-term range as in September- early January.

The bulls should be mindful of momentum signals for early sign of a break on the topside. Upward momentum is approaching overbought territory thus may turn into a reversal, which in turn would initiate a consolidation period. For now, price action focuses on testing resistance (and subsequent upside extensions).

Support level at 4859.9 should hold throughout any consolidation, followed by firm support at 4754.
