Looking at the daily chart we notice on Tuesday the Dax 30 moved to the lower trading zone 12,033 – 12,175. Yesterday, the index railed above the high end, however, slipped back after then closed below.

Therefore, a close above the high end may push the price towards 12,282 and further close above this level may cause a rally towards 12,527. Although, the daily resistance levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) would be worth monitoring.

On the other hand, any close below the low end of the current trading zone may press the price towards 11,935. However, the July 18 low underscored on the chart (Zoomed in) needs to be considered. See the chart to know more about the lower trading zone and the weekly support level, the price would encounter in a further bearish scenario.
