The DAX is not positioned real well here, with it having it hit its head on the underside of the 2011 trend-line and declining quickly after. The current bounce looks like it could result in a lower-high. If this is the case then support around 10200, which was tested numerous times for a couple of weeks last month, will become very pivotal to the outlook. A break below may quickly usher in a move towards 9550/350.
