ASX200: Multi-Month Uptrend

Technicals | Feb 06 2024

By Michael Gable 

With US share markets already trading at new highs, the S&P/ASX 200 Index finally followed by breaking higher last week to see new all-time highs.

The past few days have been fairly volatile, and overnight we have seen a push higher in US yields and the US dollar. However, we can squabble over when the first rate cut will occur, but the fact is that rates will be heading lower, and the US economy is growing again.

Funds held in money markets are sitting near all-time highs, so all of the bears who were counting on 2023 to deliver a recession and a crash in housing and share markets are sitting in cash and missing out. This cash will need to get to work as it becomes clear to them, eventually, that strong GDP and falling rates will provide a great backdrop for assets in 2024.

Today's charting section has an updated chart of the S&P/ASX 200 Index (XJO).

As we have foreshadowed for many months now, the XJO was forming under resistance near 7600 and it was only a matter of time until we saw an upside break.

That finally occurred last week (circled). As we can see on this chart, this is only the start of a major move higher where we expect a multi-month uptrend to occur which will lead to levels well above 8000.

Price action is a bit choppy in the short-term, but longer-term, price action is looking very positive. Dips are a buying opportunity.
