ASX200: Bumpy Ride Ahead

Technicals | Nov 10 2020

By Michael Gable 

Share markets have had a few good days, where generally most stocks have been heading higher. However, overnight price action in the US suggests that it will start to be a bumpy ride again as stock performances start to diverge. There will be winners and losers from here and the next few days will give us a clearer indication as to which stock prices will continue on and which ones will falter. Overlaying this of course is the potential that any adverse movements at the individual stock level in the next few days are merely an aberration against a longer-term trend.

In terms of the Australian market, despite some bumps along the way, we should generally see the S&P/ASX 200 Index head higher from here. In today's report we have a chart to show this.

After a number of false starts, it looks as though the XJO has finally broken out of the choppy range that had been in place since June (circled). As long as the XJO doesn't quickly fall back into the range, we should assume that it should continue on from here. Short term resistance is near 6,500. However, because we have been stuck in a trading range for so long, a successful break should see a decent move over the next few months, which means ultimately a retest of 7,000.
