Strong leads

21 Apr 2015 By Michael McCarthy (chief market strategist, CMC Markets) by CMC Markets Strong leads from international markets will see Australian shares jump at the opening today. In a delayed reaction to the People’s Bank of China’s newest round of stimulus, share markets in Europe and the US surged, reversing the weaker Asia Pacific market response. Oil prices made further gains, but weakness in other industrial commodities and precious metals will likely restrain enthusiasm.

Will the announcement impact of China stimulus be short lived?

Positive start ahead of employment data

16 Apr 2015 By Ric Spooner (Chief Market Analyst, CMC Markets) by CMC Markets This morning’s market is off to a solid start, led higher by the energy and materials sectors.

China data holds the key to world markets

15 Apr 2015 By Ric Spooner (Chief Market Analyst, CMC Markets) by CMC Markets Spot iron ore’s recovery to above $US50 and a stronger overnight oil price should see a reversal in resource stocks and a firm opening for the ASX 200 index this morning as traders wait on release of key Chinese economic data due at midday.

Between a Rock and a High Place

14 Apr 2015 By Michael McCarthy (chief market strategist, CMC Markets) by CMC Markets It’s a “good news, bad news” day for Australian investors, as leads point in different directions and conflicting market forces mean the close today is anyone’s guess. Weaker share markets overnight are offset by commodity gains, and uncertainty around the beginning US reporting season is compounded by recent extraordinary China trade data.

Technical Selling Weighs on Australian Market

13 Apr 2015 By Tony Kwok (Sales Trader, CMC Markets) by CMC Markets For the third time this year, the Australian market has tried to push through the 6000 level, but has retreated after coming within four points of what looks now to be a key resistance level. While the banks are relatively unchanged for the day, the miners and materials stocks have weighed on the markets as low iron ore prices continue to hurt the sector.

Thinking about 6000

13 Apr 2015 By Ric Spooner (Chief Market Analyst, CMC Markets) by CMC Markets A risk on session for international markets led by Europe is likely to see a firm opening on our stock market this morning. This will have traders again thinking about the potential implications of a break above 6000 by the ASX 200.

Market consolidates

10 Apr 2015 By Ric Spooner (Chief Market Analyst, CMC Markets) by CMC Markets There was nothing in overnight market news likely to change the outlook for Australian investors this morning. This suggests that while the market may open on a firm note, the most likely scenario for today’s trading is another day of consolidation.

Skipping

9 Apr 2015 By Michael McCarthy (chief market strategist, CMC Markets) by CMC Markets Insights to the thinking of the US Federal Reserve boards and a collapse in oil prices left investors in a cautiously optimistic mood overnight.
