Drift back continues but DAX bulls still hold control

DAX Xetra (cash index)

The DAX continues to drift in a consolidation move as the bulls just find recent gains slightly pared back below 13,000.

Although this has now decisively broken the two week uptrend, there is currently still nothing overly serious about the move back which comes within the uptrend channel of the past five weeks.

Despite a second consecutive negative candlestick, there was a pick up from yesterday’s low at 12,927 and selling pressure failed to take hold.

The RSI continues to trend higher in confirmation of the channel, whilst the MACD and Stochastics are also still positively configured to suggest that corrections will be bought into.

  • There is breakout support above 12,827, with 12,890 a higher low but the hourly chart suggests this recent move has unwound any semblance of stretched upside momentum and should help to renew upside potential.
  • This should still be a move that is bought into for a retest of the recent highs at 13,033 and a continuation of the trend channel higher.
