TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The DAX 30 has scampered higher in May thus far, looking to reclaim the ground it lost at the turn of the month. After fluctuating between two technical levels since early April, it seems as though the index has etched a range from resistance around 10,900 to support near 10,200. With that in mind, recent trips above the upper bound may suggest a willingness to continue higher, but trading above the area will have to be sustained before the DAX can solidify its gains and look higher still.
