ASX: some Aussie sectors heating up?

The Aussie stock market has lagged behind the US market following the GFC but a number of ASX sectors are looking like they could be getting ready to attempt a bullish breakout. The charts of a number of sectors show price action trading up near recent bear trend lines and, as such, they’re worth watching for any make or break activity. Some of these charts are illustrated below.

ASX Indices:

XAO weekly: ASX All Ordinaries: it’s not clear from this chart but there has been a slight breakout from the wedge trend lines here. Price is also back above the 200 EMA which is supportive:

XJO weekly: ASX 200: there has also been a slight breakout here above the wedge trend line. Price is back above the 200 EMA here too which is supportive:
