What’s next for the GER30 (DAX) traders? Today we will take a look at the current price actions signs that we’re watching. Short-term traders could have been having a feat on the recent price moves with a 10% fall in the last five days and a 12% rally to this week’s high. It is that movement that has started to get our attention as we can now see a V pattern forming. V patterns can produce reversals, but we need to see buyers beat yesterday’s high to start getting any ideas of confirmation going.
The DAX has been one of the main indexes severely beaten down. Many of its weight stocks were hit hard by worry over the future implications of a conflict in Europe and surging oil prices. Over 16% was wiped off the GER30 index in the last three weeks to its low. This week price made a strong fightback after crude prices plunged overnight, and on the news.
Will the V confirm? A lot rests on the fundamentals driving price at the moment. Will we see a cease-fire that’s respected? Will this lead to oil continuing to retreat? We feel these are important factors to give buyers further confidence to take the market higher. Any flare-ups could set off new rounds of selling, which could set the V up to fail.
