Dovish commentary from Fed officials helped change the sentiment in the index, this had also coincided with support zone holding at the March lows of 2720-40. Consequently, with 2800 showing little in the way of resistance, the index is back towards 2885-90, which had previously been rejected. On the downside, support is situated at 2830.

DAX | Trendline Curbs Further Upside

Much like global equities, the DAX has also started the month on the front foot with gains of over 3%. However, further upside in the index has been curbed by the descending trendline from the 2019 peak. As such, for the bullish momentum to persist a closing break is needed to extend towards 12200, while a firm rejection from the trendline resistance exposes the 50% fib support situated 11887.
