DAX PERFORMANCE-INDEX (.GDAXI) breaks previous highs after recent retracement
The DAX is ahead on its recovery, with the index reaching fresh highs overnight after a rally off a deep retracement at the start of the week.
That rise above 13,810 points towards a continuation of the wider bullish trend. With the price struggling to really gain traction, we could see short-term declines for another pullback. Should that occur, it would be perceived as a short-term phenomenon, with a break below 13,655 required to negate the bullish outlook that remains in play.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 13,283.68.
The projected upper bound is: 14,018.94.
The projected lower bound is: 13,333.42.
The projected closing price is: 13,676.18.
A big black candle occurred. This is bearish, as prices closed significantly lower than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “high,” it may be the first sign of a top. If it occurs when prices are confronting an overhead resistance area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or price resistance level), the long black candle adds credibility to the resistance. Similarly, if the candle appears as prices break below a support area, the long black candle confirms the failure of the support area.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 7 white candles and 3 black candles for a net of 4 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 29 white candles and 21 black candles for a net of 8 white candles.
