DAX bulls looking to rebuild but need to maintain traction

DAX Xetra (cash index)

The bulls have managed to hang on to gains made in yesterday’s session as the market has picking up again, however there is still a ranging look to recent market moves.

In the past week there has been a feel of consolidation as the market has traded around the flat 21 day moving average and momentum indicators have been more neutrally configured.

There is now a range that has formed between 12,162/12,455 and as the market has swung higher over the past couple of sessions, the hourly chart shows that there is further upside potential for maybe 100 or so ticks.

However the hourly RSI is beginning to stutter this morning around 60 which is an area where the bulls are likely to begin to struggle in a ranging market, whilst the Stochastics are already around 80.

There is a lack of conviction in the early moves this morning too.

  • There is initial resistance around 12,380 today that needs to be overcome to regain traction for the range highs again.
  • Support comes in around an old pivot at 12,284 and then 12,240
