XHJ – Chart Review of ASX 200 Health Index

A Healthy Index – The Standard and Poors ASX 200 Health Index.

This index of 18 leading Healthcare stocks escaped the 2008 GFC downturn and in 2012 resumed its uptrend to more than double; from about 7,500 to resistance at 19,950.

In the last 12 months, the index rise lost momentum, and entered a trading range, but the primary trend is still up. Break-out above 20,000 might signify resumption of the uptrend.
