The Match Out: Tensions cause a soft Monday, support for equities remains though

An escalation of aggression in the Middle East over the weekend was the main cause for concern today, weighing on the local market from the get-go. The weakness didn’t cause any contagion though, equities seemed pretty well supported after hitting a low just before midday, i.e. panic didn’t set in and traders are still using dips to edge into the ASX. Energy was the main winner today, that was despite Oil markets giving back some of the gains seen on Friday night. Materials were also surprisingly well-supported thanks to US imposing further sanctions on Russian commodities, a trade we are well-positioned for.

The Match Out: Stocks bounce from lows, Energy & Resources rally

Stocks were hit early on the back of the hotter inflation print in the US overnight, the ASX down ~100pts at its worst, before a spirited/impressive recovery played out, underpinned by the resources & energy sectors while the Staples also played their part. This sort of market action is indicative of a strong market, where negative news gets a short sharp reaction, but ultimately the weight of money remains on the buy side.

The Match Out: ASX higher, Coal stocks back in play

A reasonable session for the ASX today, underpinned again by a recovery amongst the miners, Coal stocks the standout following multiple broker upgrades. In the past month, the materials sector is +2.4% vs IT which is down -3.98% showing how sectors are coming in and out of favour, a market for active investing.  Eyes will be on the US CPI tonight with the latest set of numbers expected to fall to 0.3% from 0.4%.

The Match Out: Resources underpin strong session, Citi are Copper bulls!

A good session from commodity stocks underpinned a positive day for the ASX. Iron Ore held onto recent strength, while Citi was out with a bullish note on Copper saying…we believe copper’s second secular bull market this century is taking hold, 20 years after China urbanization and industrialization-led secular bull market. They think recent strength has further to run in the short & longer term and they revised up their price assumptions across the board. A very bullish note on Copper that is aligned with MM’s view.

The Match Out: ASX gets hit 1.3% as tech & property weigh

A tough day for Aussie stocks with the ASX getting aggressively sold off throughout the session, the recent winners in Tech and Property were front and centre of the sell-off while the Resources were relative performers. We wrote this morning that we continue to expect “3-steps forward, 2-steps back” price action in the new quarter, but another 200-point pullback wouldn’t surprise us as the index rubs up against the overhead trendline that’s contained it through 2024, although we didn’t expect half of the move to come today. It seems there are often market peaks that correlate with the end of reporting periods i.e. each quarter, a trend we will do some more work around and update you on in coming notes.
