TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The DAX recovery is coming from a seriously strong level of support, but at the moment it is at risk of making a run back lower towards long-term support if the break of a short-term rising wedge can lead to the breaking of another near-term shelf.
The ascending wedge was triggered with yesterday’s 4% down day, and on that there are some gap-fills that could come into play in the coming sessions. However, there is decent support right around 10200 that needs to break first. A break below 10198 will have the April 6 gap-fill at 10069 within reach, followed by the April 3 gap down from 9841 to the fill at 9527.
