DAX 30 Price Forecast: Resistance Stands in the Way of Recovery

The DAX 30 has unleashed a recovery attempt after falling precipitously from all-time highs over the last two weeks. As a result, the German equity index has moved to test resistance in the form of a rising trendline from December 2018. While the Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq have had the benefit of a 50basis point rate cut from the Fed, the ECB has fewer options at hand which could see the DAX lag its American counterparts regardless of overhead resistance.

Either way, the rising trendline around 12,260 will be an early test of the DAX’s newfound bullishness. A break above would be an encouraging development that could allow the index to test subsequent resistance around 12,500 ahead of the 200-day simple moving average at 12,740.

Potential support in the event risk aversion returns should reside around 11,873, 11,688 and, perhaps most importantly, 11,525 which coincides with the recent swing low. A successful break beneath the level would establish a lower-low and may see the DAX 30 continue lower still.

That being said, IG Client Sentiment Data reveals retail traders are once again net-short the DAX – a sign bulls may prevail in the weeks ahead. Similarly, RSI has crept out of oversold territory but only slightly. Thus, the DAX should have a lot of room to run should the fundamental landscape allow.
