Looking at the daily chart, we notice yesterday the Dow broke below 50-day average then tested a low end of the trading zone 26,050 – 27,403. However, the price closed above it.

Today, the low end of the zone has been again put to the test. Thus, a close below this level could send the price towards 24,860. In that scenario, the support levels marked on the chart (zoomed in) would be worth monitoring.

On the other hand, another failure at closing below the low end could change the price’s course, sending it towards the high end of the zone contingent on clearing the daily resistance levels underlined on the chart.

Looking at the daily chart, we notice yesterday the Dax broke below the neckline of double top pattern residing at 12,142. Additionally, the index declined to a lower trading zone 11,691- 12,032 eyeing a test of the low end of it.

This suggests that the price may be on its way towards 11,766, as long stays below the neckline. Its worth mentioning that any close below the low end of the aforementioned trading zone could press the index towards 11,265. Although, the weekly support levels underscored on the chart (zoomed in) should be watched closely.

That said, any failure in closing below the low end could reverse the current direction towards the high end of the zone. Further close above the high end could see the Dax trading towards 12,498. Nevertheless, the daily resistance levels underlined on the chart should be considered.
