ASX 200 headed for another test of 4000

Declining volume and strong red candles at the recent ASX 200 reversal warn of another test of 4000. Support at 4000 is unlikely to hold unless there is a strong spike in volume, similar to that in early August. Failure would offer a target of 3500*.

ASX 200 support weakens

The ASX 200 Index is headed for another test of support at 4000. Volumes are far lower than the previous week, indicating a scarcity of buyers. Unless there is a significant upsurge on Tuesday, we are likely to see a downward breakout, offering a target of 3500*.
