Dax reversal cues further upside

Director / PIA First
United Kingdom

Our medium-term bias in Dax remains negative as price action trades within a corrective phase and below 10,850. The bullish outside day onTuesday signalled a clear reversal, engulfing the bodies of the three previous weekly candles, after the selloff stalled at previous support and the daily ichimoku cloud.

An overnight extension higher above the 200-day moving average has stalled and reversed and looks to target the overnight gap, but we believe the underlying momentum will support below here and we would treat this as a dip-buying opportunity.

We look to set longs at our short-term bespoke levels to target this morning's peak with a stop below the daily pivot.

Management and risk description

We look to set longs on a dip to target the morning high (also 61.8% fibonacci retracement and the 78.6% fibonacci retracement level) before attempting the psychological 10,500.


Entry: buy GER30.i in front of 10,060.

Stop: a break below 10,000

Target: 10,175, 10,325 & 10,500

Time horizon: 1-3 days.
