German Dax Trades Above 13500 As Bulls Aim Higher

European equity futures have extended gains as a weaker US Dollar offers further reprieve for risk assets. With Dax 40 futures making a full recovery from the September sell-off, the five-week rally has assisted in driving price action above 13,500.

Although last week’s heavy economic data and rumors of China’s reopening led to additional volatility throughout global markets, the performance-based Dax ended the week with a 1.66% gain.

Dax Technical Analysis

After pushing through prior trendline resistance on the weekly chart, a brief retest of 13,036 and strong retaliation from bulls supported the upside move. As the body of last week’s candle closed above the falling wedge pattern, the 200-week MA (moving average) stepped in as support at 13364.

Meanwhile, the daily chart below further highlights how prices have broken out, snapping back after a steep decline. From the October low of 11829, a move above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement (from 2020 – 2021) at 13115 and a break of the downward trendline drove prices higher before reaching 13364. The initial rejection of this level drove prices back to the same Fibonacci zone before the formation of a doji candle and a sharp rebound drove the bullish breakout.

With support at prior resistance, the 13500 psychological level remains key for the short-term move. As prices continue to edge higher, the 13750 area has historically provided resistance and may continue to do so for both the short and longer-term move.

But, with focus on inflation and recession fears, additional selling pressure and a drop below 13364 could bring 13115 and 13000 back to life.
