29/07/2014 | 9:13 AM The marginal break of resistance on the All Ordinaries needs to be viewed in the context of what is happening elsewhere in the world, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
22/07/2014 | 9:29 AM Looking beyond the financials and resources sectors, there is an improvement in an increasing number of the major stocks and this should impact positively on the broader market, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
15/07/2014 | 9:19 AM It is indeed a very frustrating time for investors with no endgame in the constant battle between the bulls and the bears in sight, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
8/07/2014 | 8:36 AM The Australian market is very close to breaking above resistance with encouraging performances from major Australian miners and some overseas miners, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
1/07/2014 | 8:28 AM The market's only prospect for a topside break lies with the resources sector, but given the Materials index has not yet broken above resistance, it is too soon to get excited about a turnaround, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
24/06/2014 | 8:53 AM While the resources side of our market may not necessarily be about to reverse to the upside, one area in the space that may actually push higher is the gold miners, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
17/06/2014 | 8:14 AM With neither the banks nor the majority of the ASX 20 Leaders looking like offering much upside, technical analyst Lesley Beath questions whether the resources will be able to offer support.
10/06/2014 | 10:29 AM Last week's break in the VIX is important as it creates a new environment and may usher in a new stage in the bull market, according to technical analyst Lesley Beath.
3/06/2014 | 10:29 AM If there is a topside break in the Dow, the FTSE and the All Ords, and if this is accompanied by a break of support in the VIX, there is scope for a sharp rally, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
27/05/2014 | 8:56 AM If a tightly fought tug of war between the bulls and the bears in the US and Australia is decisively broken there is, however unlikely, scope for a sharp upside move, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
12/05/2014 | 4:02 PM While the major Australian indices are holding up and have not succumbed to the selling pressure that has accompanied prior false breakouts, caution should still be exercised, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
5/05/2014 | 4:35 PM Last week's key reversal will need to be aborted quickly if there is to be scope for upside over the next month or so, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
29/04/2014 | 9:04 AM When viewed in isolation the Australian market appears relatively robust, but action in the US is a dark cloud on the horizon, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
14/04/2014 | 4:41 PM The situation in US markets remains high-risk and this will continue to be the case until there are some signs of improvement, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
7/04/2014 | 4:31 PM Action in the US equity market is flashing a strong warning signal and unless the US turns quickly an overall cautious attitude is warranted, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
1/04/2014 | 9:10 AM While the All Ords looks set to push through the upper limits of a range that has been in place since late October, similar situations in the past have given rise to a "false break," technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
25/03/2014 | 9:56 AM A bounce in the resources side of the local market could underpin a short-term bounce in the broader indices but the potential to push sharply to the upside still seems limited, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
18/03/2014 | 10:35 AM The recent rally appears to be nothing more than a rebound from oversold levels and is unlikely to mark the beginning of a sustainable upward move, technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
11/03/2014 | 9:45 AM The ASX Midcap 50 and the Small Ordinaries indices have both outperformed this year and further outperformance is on the cards, according to technical analyst Lesley Beath.
3/03/2014 | 3:09 PM It is imperative to look at financial markets as a whole, where action in one market may give clues as to what may happen in another, as technical analyst Lesley Beath illustrates.
24/02/2014 | 8:22 AM AREITs are likely to be resilient in a pullback and may even outperform the broader market, writes technical analyst Lesley Beath.
18/02/2014 | 8:45 AM Although the gold stocks have rallied significantly over the past few months, they are still trading at a fraction of their recent highs, writes technical analyst Lesley Beath.
10/02/2014 | 5:03 PM Current market levels could be viewed as an entry point, but given the negative outlook for the rest of the year, there is no compelling reason to "buy the dip," technical analyst Lesley Beath says.
4/02/2014 | 10:44 AM The deterioration in the S&P Banks index should make investors sit up and take note, writes technical analyst Lesley Beath.
