ASX200 Hovers Around 10 Year High at 6000 – Market Update

ASX200

The ASX200 index has enjoyed another solid week moving higher although it continues to look a little shaky at any level above 6000.  It formed another classic reversal pattern yesterday as it got close to 6050 and today has eased lower back towards 6000 again.  The positive remains that it is currently trading higher than where it started this year and has experienced a solid last couple of months.

The all time highs this week:

  • BWX LIMITED ORDINARY
  • CARSALES.COM LTD. ORDINARY
  • CHALLENGER LIMITED ORDINARY
  • CYBG PLC CDI 1:1FOREXEMPT LSE

AUD/USD

The last few months have seen the AUDUSD decline considerably from above 0.80 to it present trading levels right above 0.75.  However as I mentioned last week, the AUDUSD has enjoyed rock solid support from the 0.75 level as it has surged higher this week returning to a one month high around 0.7670.

The 0.75 level has supported the Australian dollar numerous times during this year and has done a solid job again over the last week  Looking above the 0.7750 level has provided some reasonable resistance  throughout this year and will be closely watching if the Australian dollar continues to move higher.

As I type this, it is currently trading around 0.7669.
