ASX 200 correction

The ASX 200 broke support at 6120/6150, signaling a correction. Expect support at the rising long-term trendline at 6000. Penetration of the trendline would warn that the primary up-trend is faltering.

Banks lead the decline, with ASX 300 Banks index headed for a test of primary support at 7300. A Trend Index peak below zero would warn of strong selling pressure. Breach of 7300 would signal another decline. Follow-through below 7000 would present a long-term target of 5000, the 2011 low.

I am cautious on Australian stocks, especially banks, and hold over 30% cash in the Australian Growth portfolio.
