DAX consolidates as key near term support holds

DAX Xetra (cash index)

The DAX is very much in consolidation mode today after a bout of selling pressure hit the market yesterday.

The negative candle posted yesterday will have got the bulls questioning their control, however as long as the market remains supported above the pivot around 12,160 the outlook of improvement will remain intact.

Daily momentum indicators have improved considerably in the past couple of weeks and although they have slipped back a touch following yesterday’s negative close, there is still this improving outlook in place on a near to medium term basis.

  • A positive candle today would help to bolster support for the pivot at 12,160 and help to calm the nerves of the bulls.

On the hourly chart this recent dip back looks to be a move to just unwind some of the positive near term  momentum and could be a chance to buy now.

  • The hourly chart also shows the basis of support around 12,200.

Geopolitical escalation in Syria would be the big risk to this positive technical outlook.

  • Resistance is at 12,429 which protects 12,460 and the key 12,600.
