ASX200 index - key technical level to watch located @5453
The ASX200 index originally generated a technical sell signal at 5833 on 20/4/15. The rally over recent days did not result in the index technicals turning positive. If an upward reversal / base forming is to occur a consolidation phase will be required above the 10/6/15 intra-day low @ 5453. A key part of technical base forming is the requirement for a secondary sell off to occur after the initial rally (but during this secondary pullback phase in relation to the ASX200 index it must not revisit the 5453 level). The ratio of stock sell signals versus buy signals generated currently remains heavily weighted on the sell side, which remains a negative market momentum indicator - 75 stock sell signals have been generated since 30/3/15 compared to 27 buy signals during the same period. The first indicator of a broad, sustainable turnaround in the market being underway would be a notable increase in large cap stock technical buy signals being generated, which is not occurring at the moment.
