ASX: Banks and Miners v the Rest

The struggle between miners and banks is changing.

The ASX 200 rallied this week, breaking out of its downward trend channel. Although in a primary down-trend after breaching 5800, the index is enjoying strong support.

Consumer Discretionary, Health Care…

Utilities and Industrials.

The change reflects a rosier global outlook, with Commodities rising, but I doubt that it can last without support from the ASX 200’s two biggest sectors.

    Mining shares = they are due to correct downwards in line with the UBS Commodity Index reaching two-year resistant levels, as the US$ resumes it’s three-month strength into the medium-term.

    Banking shares = the Royal Commission’s later findings will really negatively impact banking profits / financial services structure and the continuity of existing employees / ASIC’s regulations and supervision of the sector and quality-of-earnings valuations.

    Sell XJO therefore [ and the S&P 500 , where extreme valuations ** provide the high risk of an implosion, negating your contention that ” It is unlikely that the market will capitulate when presented with such strong earnings” in
