DAX bulls face a key moment for a test of the highs

DAX futures (Mar 2018 contract FDXH8, continuation contract is FDXc1)

After a period of uncertainty the bulls stormed ahead on Friday with a hugely impressive session of strong gains.

Adding 170 ticks on the day and a breakout above resistance at 13,422 to a ten week high the bulls come into this week in the driving seat.

Momentum indicators have swung decisively higher again with the Stochastics swinging up, with MACD lines with a bull kiss and the RSI into the low 60s again.

Can this momentum continue to test the all-time high at 13,525?

The test will be how the bulls react to the breakout above 13,422.

  • There is a basis of support now 13,350/13,422 which is a near term buy zone.

This could come to be tested as the hourly indicators just tick a touch lower this morning.

  • However as long as this support band holds then the outlook for upside to 13,525 will continue.

A failure then suggests that the market would be continuing to play out the ranging market littered with false breaks.

An important moment for the bulls.

  • Initial resistance at 13,469 from Friday’s high.
