TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The DAX has been trading higher for nearly two straight months, with only one minor pullback along the way. As it currently stands, there aren’t any substantial resistance levels to contend with until the record high near 13600. This doesn’t mean the market will rise to that point, but it does mean that without levels or bearish price action, for now we’ll continue to give the upward trend the benefit of the doubt. Support on a decline arrives around 12900 and the trend-line off the March low.
For the day the Dow is trading at 25,013.29 up with +1.21% percent or +298.20 point. The S&P 500 is trading at 2,733.01 up with +0.74% percent or +20.04 point. The Nasdaq Composite is trading at 7,394.04 up with +0.54% percent or +39.70 point.
