TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The DAX 30 dropped below the 200-day MA recently, but it was only an affair that lasted a couple of days. The gap on Monday has so far sustained, bringing into play the 11865-resistance level from earlier this month. Beyond there the next level to watch is the gap from the beginning of the month from 12034 up to 12252.
Broadly speaking, price action since May could be taking the shape of a head-and-shoulders pattern, with the current price action working towards a possible right shoulder. This would mean that while the current rally could extend it won’t likely extend for much longer before fading and turn back lower.
