DAX 30 Gains As Chinese Exports Return To Growth

DAX 30 Gains As Chinese Exports Return To Growth

Alejandro Zambrano, Market Analyst

Talking Points

  • German stocks rose in line with European ones as Chinese exports returned to growth.
  • The DAX 30 is now trading above last week’s high of 9005, leaving the March high of 10,118 exposed.
  • Eurozone Industrial Production declined by -0.8% MoM vs. the -0.7% expected.
  • U.S. Retail Sales are to be published this afternoon.

The DAX 30 (FXCM: GER30) is up by 1.63% at the time of writing as stock market sentiment is bullish across European stock markets, following the return of growth for Chinese exports. Investors see the increase in exports as a sign of stabilization for the world’s second-biggest economy.

The export report, published overnight, showed that exports in CNY rose by 18.7% YoY from negative 20.6% in February, while imports declined by -1.7% YoY in March from -8% in February.

The DAX 30 is now trading above last week’s high of 9005, leaving the March high of 10,118 exposed. Beyond the March high, the January 5 high of 10,400 is the next important resistance level. The latest swing low and current support is last week’s low of 9437.

Eurozone Industrial Production, published this morning, declined by -0.8% MoM vs. the -0.7% expected in a Bloomberg survey. Year-on-Year the Industrial Production rose by a mere 0.8% vs. the 1.3% expected.

The lower than anticipated outcome did not immediately affect the DAX 30.

The quarterly YoY reading of Industrial Production has a correlation of 0.78 to Eurozone GDP YoY over the last 20 years.
