Can The GER40 Keep Its Strength?

2 February 2023 Written by Stuart Cowell  HF Markets Head Market Analyst Stuart Cowell

As attention turns to the approaching Fed and ECB announcements, the GER40 index maintains stability near its best level since September last year. The German blue-chip index is in a bull market, having risen more than 28% from a low of 11859.45 in 2022, joining other European indexes that have recently put up a stunning recovery.

This week is important for the GER40 index, considering that the Fed will announce its monetary policy decision. The bank is expected to raise interest rates by 0.25% in its first decision this year.

The Fed will probably try to tone down the euphoria by being a little hawkish, given that bond yields are falling and global markets are surging. Besides that, this week’s ECB meeting will also end on Thursday. The ECB will of course be different from the Fed, because it is still dealing with very high inflation rates. The market expects the bank to increase interest rates at this meeting by 0.50%. Meanwhile, the Norges Bank and Bank of England are the other two leading central banks to watch this week.

Technical Analysis

The daily chart of GER40 shows that the index has been in a strong bullish trend in the last few days. It recently managed to move above the key resistance level at 14,677.45, its December high. By moving above this level, the index has confirmed the trend continuation from 11,859.45. The index is currently around 15,188.95, above its 52 day EMA, and Kumo is bullish.

At the same time, AO has been moving above neutral and the RSI is at 66, and it does not yet show overbought levels. On the upside, a move above the 15,271.95 minor resistance is projected for the FE 61.8% level around 15,543.45 and the major resistance is seen at the 16,000 round figure. Meanwhile, a move under the minor support at 14,902.95 could test the resistance level which has now become support at 14,677.45.

Overall, the index is still in the rising channel, although divergence is visible but has not shown any change, because the bias tends to still be seen moving northwards with higher highs and higher lows.
