ASX XJO Commentary 02-11-2015 - Australian Share Market News

Australian Market (XJO) Daily – 5239.4 – 30.10.15. Monday was an up day, reaching just 10 points higher than Friday before closing just below the open and forming a Doji.  Doji’s are a sign of indecision and potential reversals (that is if they are in the correct position in a trend, such as at the end of it).  This was confirmed on Tuesday, which was a down day.

Australian and US Market Commentary

Australian Market (XJO) Daily – 5351.6 – 23.10.15. For the second week in a row Monday was an inside day, but this time forming a Doji.  It was Tuesday that confirmed a down day and the potential third top of the Triple Top mentioned last week.  Wednesday was another down day, retracing more than 75% of the small previous up range (but not going below 5164) before closing above the open but down from the high of the day and looking like a reversal.

Australian & US Market Commentary - Start of a Bull Market or is it a Bull Trap?


This weekend saw another titanic battle and that was the battle for the mountain (Mount Panorama). After the last couple of years with Ford dominating, Holden managed to get the top spot this year. However it wasn’t clear sailing as it has all the ups and downs of a trader in the current market. The thrills and spills and the hits and misses that we find each day navigating the markets. The highest highs and the lowest lows you will find in both motor racing and the market. To see who is leading the race between the Bulls and the Bears please find attached a summary of this week’s Market Commentary looking at the Australian and US markets.

Australian Market XJO - Commentary

Australian Market ASX XJO. We made a low on Monday (4973.4) before rallying hard for two days, reaching 5221.1 and gaining 247.7 points or 5.0%.  I have spoken in previous reports about expecting volatility in our market, and this is a perfect example of that.  If this wasn’t enough to convince you about expecting volatility in our market, we then fell for the next two days, dropping 167.4 points or 3.2% to round out the week.   That’s a move of 8.2% up and back for the week from Monday’s low.

Kiwi threatens parity with AUD$

Australia may have convincingly beaten the Kiwis in the recent Cricket World Cup final but it’s the New Zealanders that are winning the currency world cup.  The Kiwi dollar is a Middle Earth hobbit away from parity with the Aussie, the highest it’s traded since floating in 1985.  Had the RBA cut rates on Tuesday every Kiwi in the land would have been handed bragging rights by Glen Stevens as a move to parity and beyond was almost certain.
