European stocks play catch up – DAX, CAC & FTSE Technical Levels

European stocks play catch up – DAX, CAC & FTSE Technical Levels

Tammy Da Costa, Analyst

DAX, FTSE, CAC Talking Points:

European Equities Recover From Recent Slump

The Dax 40 has managed to push through the 14,200 handle as European equities recovered a portion of recent losses.

With US earning season underway, the NASDAQ 100 has stalled after disappointing Netflix earnings caused its share price to fall over 36% (at the time of writing). Although US Indices remained steady, both the German DAX and the French CAC edged higher with FTSE lagging behind..

DAX Technical Analysis – Bulls aren’t ready to surrender just yet

Although the 14,000 – 14,400 range continues to provide strong levels of both support and resistance, the psychological level of 14,200 and the 23.6% Fibonacci level of 14,330 (2020 – 2021 move) have assisted in holding price action at bay.

If prices rise above 14,400, a break above Fibonacci and psychological level 14,600 could steer price action towards the 14,770 level, leaving the door open for bulls to reclaim 15,000.

For the prominent trend to shift in favor of the bears, a break below 14,000 and the next psychological level of 13,800 could see the 13,688 Fibonacci level as the next support level with the 13,500 handle providing an additional hurdle for sellers.

CAC 40 Technical Analysis

Meanwhile, the CAC 40 is finding it difficult to break clear of the 6,500 level as both bulls and bears fail to gain traction. If prices hold above 6,500, a break above 6,650 could bring the psychological level of 6,800 into play with an aim to retest the 7,000 mark.

On the bearish side of the spectrum, a break below 6,400 may provide sellers with the opportunity to drive prices back towards the March low at 6,204. If both levels are broken, the next level of support rests at 6,000 with an increase in downward pressure paving the way for a retest of the March low at 5,751.

FTSE 100 Technical Analysis

Although the FTSE 100 currently remains above the 7,600 mark which has proven to be a firm level of both support and resistance throughout the year, muted price action has seen the price action temporarily stall. As buyers eye the Feb high at 7,687, a break above this level may see the UK index climb towards the 2019 high at 7,903.
