Management and risk description

We can see our downtrend very clear on the daily chart and mid-term traders will now get the chance to find an entry. This downtrend already made a correction of around 75% which results in interesting targets around €63 and €57.

We can also see an resistance zone which consists of the SMA 200 (red line) and the EMA 100 (blue line). Before this zone is not significantly broken the downtrend is intact. Should the stock, however, significantly break through the price level of around €76.70, our short-idea would be over. The decreasing volume in the correction (see Fig.2, black arrow in volume) is another indication that additionally favours a short position.


Entry: €71

Stop: €74

Target: €63, €57
