The DAX has been in a sluggish state lately even if it isn’t rolling over with any real type of momentum. The 2011 trend-line and gaps from March 6/9 continue to be the big hurdle for the German benchmark to jump. Another push up into the 11235/11541 area could find yet another rejection. If the market can muster that much of a gain.
