DAX futures (JUNE 2017 contract is FDXM7, continuation chart is FDXc1)
Consolidation in the wake of the latest upside break continues.
A second successive inside day reflects a market settling down.
Although the market managed to complete an all-time closing high last night, there are now lower daily highs in place as the market has started to drift sideways.
I continue to see this as a consolidation that is a result of a stretched market and a move that is the latest in a line of consolidations that follow upside breaks.
The RSI is just pulling slightly lower to a still strong 74, whilst the MACD lines and Stochastics are strongly configured.
There is still little reason to believe that this is a precursor to a corrective phase.
The hourly chart shows the market has consolidated back to a six day uptrend as the hourly momentum indicators also unwind to levels where the bulls tend to resume control.
