DAX Sold Heavily, September Low Ahead

Heavy selling for the DAX with the index seeing its largest fall since Sep 21st, which in turn has put the September low in focus at 12.341. A break below opens the door to the 200DMA at 12,162. Yesterday, Chancellor Merkel announced tougher restrictions in light of record daily increases in COVID cases. Alongside this, as markets also keep a close eye on the upcoming election, with volatility set to increase, bounce backs are expected to be shallow and thus see the DAX remaining soft in the weeks ahead.
