DAX 30/CAC 40 Technical Highlights

  • DAX broke out of bull-flag, looking for new swing-high
  • CAC out of consolidation, challenging 2018 high

For fundamental and technical forecasts, trade ideas, and educational guides, check out the DailyFX Trading Guides page.

DAX broke out of bull-flag, looking for new swing-high

The pullback in the DAX for much of the month taking the shape of a bull-flag was snapped on Tuesday, leaving it in position to challenge and break the July 4 high at 12656. If indeed this is the case, there could be minor resistance at a top-side t-line connecting the May and July highs.

The next level of price resistance beyond the July high is a peak from July of last year, arriving at 12886. Turning to near-term support, the trend-line off the June low will be watched, followed by the trend-line rising up from the December low.

Often the best position is no position. Tactically speaking, risk/reward on new longs isn’t particularly appealing, but that is also the case for shorts. Existing longs from lower prices may want to consider giving the market a chance to trade to new heights.

CAC out of consolidation, challenging 2018 high

The CAC posted a solid consolidation pattern from July 4 until it gapped higher today. The caveat to the breakout from congestion is the fact that the French index is now trading at the 2018 high. This makes risk/reward tricky for new longs, as risk of a reversal has increased despite the breakout.

However, a break through the 2018 high, in-line with overall summer trend will continue to keep things rolling for bullish traders. Shorts aren’t all that appealing even with resistance at hand.
