DAX | Psychological 11000 Level Broken

Backend of last week saw a strong bout of selling with the DAX breaking through the psychological 11000 level. RSI on the daily timeframe shows a negative divergence, which has now broken support, consequently increasing the negative view on the index. Trendline holding for now, however, firm break places 10500 under threat.

FTSE MIB | Déjà vu as Resistance Remains Firm

Despite the slight recovery in the FTSE MIB throughout much of the week, topside resistance had held firm yet again with limited follow through above the psychological 20,000 level. As previously mentioned, the daily RSI continues to show us a negative divergence and with the RSI breaking support, there is greater scope for losses to persist. Support is situated at 19270 (Jan 23rd low), whereby a clear break risks a test of the 19000 level.
