The ASX 200 penetrated its lower trend channel, indicating that the up-trend is slowing. This week’s long tail indicates short-term buying pressure but not necessarily a reversal. Breach of primary support at 5100 would warn of another decline (4700). Bearish divergence on Twiggs Money Flow indicates long-term selling pressure.
The ASX 300 Banks Index is consolidating between 7200 and 8000. Declining Twiggs Money Flow peaks warn of long-term selling pressure but this week’s blue candle suggests short-term support. A test of primary support at 7200 remains more likely but a failed swing that recovers to 8000 would be a bullish sign. Breakout above 8000 (still unlikely) would signal a primary up-trend.
