DAX Xetra (cash index)
A corrective downtrend channel continues to pull the DAX lower as momentum in the resumed sell-off grows.
With a run of lower highs and lower lows taking hold, the market is now back below the support band 12,100/12,130 following a gap lower today.
Friday’s decisive solid bearish candle reflects the negative sentiment that is developing on the DAX which increasingly has intraday rallies being sold into.
The market gapped to the bottom of the trend channel today and this is a gap that needs to be filled at 12,103 but any move to unwind the initial sell-off today should be seen as another opportunity to sell.
A close below 12,100 today would certainly leave the market at risk of a retreat to test the 11,865 September low.
Momentum indicators are taking an increasingly corrective configuration now with the Stochastics accelerating lower, RSI below 40 and most concerning for the bulls, a MACD sell signal.
