  • SEC Chair Gensler: - Working with Congress on crypto would help - A large number of crypto investors could be harmed
  • Pre-FOMC US Dollar Price Action Setups: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY
  • The big question is whether the Fed announces taper tomorrow or whether they punt that announcement to the November rate decision, waiting for employment data to improve to the point of ‘significant further progress. More market update from @JStanleyFX :
  • SEC Chair Gensler: - The market is in a better position to absorb global shocks - Securities rules give the SEC great power over crypto
  • feels like we haven't had one of these in quite a while Pre-FOMC Price Action Setups, starting right at 1pm, top of the hour 1. USD PA setups 2. Evergrande worries 3. Stonks - fly or die?
  • That all said, staying patient and not chasing is prudent here imo. Tomorrow will likely be better for assessing short-term directional bias (China markets open again following holiday, post-FOMC).
  • Also, S&P Global put out a report overnight that said China would likely step in to curb “far-reaching contagion” re: Evergrande. The House is scheduled to vote on a stopgap funding bill Tuesday, which might be alleviating some investor angst around the debt ceiling as well.
  • Encouraging we recoiled higher off yesterday’s closing level. Could the pre-FOMC drift be at work? Markets were priced for potential hawkish shift and increased odds of taper timeline announcement. Perhaps seeing an unwind of that in light of recent market developments.

DAX 30 Price Forecast: Resistance Stands in the Way of Recovery

DAX 30 Price Forecast: Resistance Stands in the Way of Recovery

DAX 30 Price Outlook:

DAX 30 Price Forecast: Resistance Stands in the Way of Recovery

The DAX 30 has unleashed a recovery attempt after falling precipitously from all-time highs over the last two weeks. As a result, the German equity index has moved to test resistance in the form of a rising trendline from December 2018. While the Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq have had the benefit of a 50-basis point rate cut from the Fed, the ECB has fewer options at hand which could see the DAX lag its American counterparts regardless of overhead resistance.

Either way, the rising trendline around 12,260 will be an early test of the DAX’s newfound bullishness. A break above would be an encouraging development that could allow the index to test subsequent resistance around 12,500 ahead of the 200-day simple moving average at 12,740.

DAX 30 price chart forecast

Potential support in the event risk aversion returns should reside around 11,873, 11,688 and, perhaps most importantly, 11,525 which coincides with the recent swing low. A successful break beneath the level would establish a lower-low and may see the DAX 30 continue lower still.

That being said, IG Client Sentiment Data reveals retail traders are once again net-short the DAX – a sign bulls may prevail in the weeks ahead. Similarly, RSI has crept out of oversold territory but only slightly. Thus, the DAX should have a lot of room to run should the fundamental landscape allow.

To that end, European officials may look to offer a lifeline in the form of fiscal reform which could spark further bullishness. In the meantime, follow @PeterHanksFX on Twitter for updates and analysis on the stock market.
