S&P 500 | Topside Resistance Situated at 2800

After a strong week of gains, in which the S&P 500 rose over 2% on the week, the index is now eyeing key topside resistance at 2800. Previous attempts to make a firm break had been rejected. As such, there is a risk of a potential pullback. However, a closing break above leaves scope for a test of 2900. Near term support is situated at 2730-40.

DAX | Bounces Off Rising Trendline

The DAX has seen somewhat of a corrective bounce from the rising trendline, which in turn brings the 2019 highs in focus (11390). However, provided that the DAX holds below 11500, the index continues to remain in the broader downtrend from the 2018 peak. Price action has been relatively neutral with the DAX ranging from 11000-11300 over the past two weeks. Given the risks of US auto tariffs on the EU risks a tilted for a potential a break of the range to the downside, which in turn exposes a move towards 10800.
