Bulls running higher but key March highs lie in wait

DAX Xetra (cash index)

The bulls have come back after the weekend with the glass half full which has pushed the DAX to a three week high this morning.

This continues the recovery which had been questioned following Friday’s doji candlestick, but the move has taken the market above resistance of the downtrend channel which is increasingly breaking the corrective phase.

The momentum indicators on the daily chart are leading the recovery as the RSI rises above 50 to ten week highs , whilst the MACD and Stochastics lines are accelerating higher.

This means the market is positioning for a test of the key March highs at 12,460 which will be a decisive technical improvement if it were to be seen.

  • The market is also now leaving behind the pivot around 12,160 which is the basis of support near term now.
  • Initial support comes in the range 12,200/12,290 this morning.
  • A move above 12,460 opens 12,600.
