Bullish DAX Momentum Gathers Pace, S&P 500 Remains Bid Following FOMC

Recent price action keeps the topside targets on the radar as the DAX breaks out of a near-term range, and a break/close above 12,872 (61.8% retracement) raises the risk for a move back towards 13,193 (78.6% retracement) as an upward trend takes shape. Future developments in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) may also reinforce a bullish outlook, with a break above 70 raising the risk for a larger advance in German shares as the indicator pushes into overbought territory for the first time since last-2017.

S&P 500 SNAPS BACK AHEAD OF APRIL-LOW AS FEDERAL OPEN MARKET COMMITTEE (FOMC) TAMES BETS FOR FOUR RATE-HIKES IN 2018
