S&P 500 | Descending Trendline to Spark Inflection Point

Following the closing break above 2600, the S&P 500 has continued to push for better levels. However, momentum to the upside could possibly be curbed by notable resistance at the 2700 level, which also coincides with the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. Alongside this, the descending trendline from the record high sits at 2710-20, which could allow for a potential topping out for the index.

DAX | Key Resistance Cleared, Bulls Target 11500

As noted last week, the DAX had reached the first big level of resistance, which has subsequently been broken. As such, eyes are on a move towards the 100DMA (11250), which could offer the next level of resistance. A break above however, increases scope of a test of 11500, which roughly coincides with the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of the 2018 peak to the 2018 low.
