Dow Jones, Nasdaq 100 & DAX 30 Technical Forecasts for the Week

Dow Jones, Nasdaq 100 & DAX 30 Forecasts:

Dow Jones Forecast

Outlook: Bullish

The Dow Jones continued its rally last week, closing above 28,000 for the first time in history. After breaking higher earlier this month, technical barriers have been sparse and the fundamental landscape accommodative – allowing for an extended run. Looking ahead, the Dow can now look to enjoy support in areas where it previously faced resistance.

To that end, the DJIA could enjoy potential support around the 27,500 level which marks the highs established in July and September earlier this year. Subsequent support could come into the fold around the psychologically significant 27,000 level before horizontal support at 26,700 is needed – but such a retracement would likely require a serious fundamental shift.

Nasdaq 100 Forecast

Outlook: Bullish

The Nasdaq 100 has surged alongside its blue-chip counterpart, establishing record levels of its own. Perhaps unsurprisingly then, the technical backdrop of the two US indices is somewhat similar. Topside resistance is sparse without previous price action to offer its influence and prior barriers have morphed into potential areas of buoyance. Thus, the ascending band from September 2018 around 8,175 will be an area to watch in the event the tech-heavy index turns lower in the week ahead.

DAX 30 Forecast

Outlook: Bullish

Similarly, the DAX 30 has climbed to lofty levels of its own. After surging higher since late August, the German equity index has seemingly stopped to catch its breath, a development I had argued was necessary before further gains can be attempted.

With that in mind, the DAX may now turn its sights higher once more. Enjoying two-fold support around 13,190 which has helped provide a cushion for consolidation, the ascending trendline from December could carry the DAX 30 to highs from January 2018 around 13,500. Thus, 13,500 is the level to watch in the event of a bullish continuation while a break beneath confluent support could see the index seek secondary support around 12,900.
