The ASX 200 is edging higher today, but having difficulties trading above 5,300 at this time.

The index was trading in a well-defined range between the 5,380 resistance and the 4,750 support until July saw a breakout higher. The failure to hold above 5,380 meant a return to trading in that range.

After forming what might be perceived as a bullish morning star pattern around the 5,200 support, bulls hopes might have been rekindled, but at the moment it seems like the index is having difficulties posting a close above 5,300.

A break above 5,300 seems likely to have eyes on 5,380-5,400 for potential resistance, but as long as that area holds, pressure seems to be to the downside.

A move lower might shift focus to 5,200 for possible support while the low around 5,100 seems important after the index recovered from that area following Brexit.
