The ASX 300 Banks index is headed in the opposite direction and continues to drag on the broad market index. Declining Twiggs Money Flow warns of selling pressure. Expect another test of primary support at 8000; breach would confirm a primary down-trend.

The ASX 200, pulled in both directions, continues to consolidate in a narrow line between 5650 and 5800. Rising Twiggs Money Flow (21-day) indicates short-term buying pressure and a test of resistance at 5800 is likely. Breakout from the narrow line will signal a primary advance or decline, but direction remains unclear despite the bullish movement from miners.
