RBA concern over the rising Australian Dollar is increasing, but whether this will motivate governor Glenn Stevens to do more than attempt to talk the market lower remains to be seen. The Aussie retraced to test its new support level, but only a fall below $0.92 would suggest a trend change. Recovery above $0.94 would suggest not, while follow-through above $0.95 would confirm a target of $0.97.
The ASX 200 broke clear of its descending trendline, suggesting that the correction is over. But 21-day Twiggs Money Flow remains weak and follow-through above 5540/5560 unlikely. Further ranging between 5400 and 5550 seems likely. Reversal below 5380 is now unlikely, but would warn of a test of 5300.
* Target calculation: 5550 + ( 5550 – 5400 ) = 5700
ASX 200 VIX again tracked lower, indicating a bull market.
