DAX PERFORMANCE-INDEX (.GDAXI) consolidating after recent breakout
The DAX has been treading water overnight, following on from a break through the crucial 13,472 resistance level. That leaves us within touching distance of the 13,601 record high.
The key to further gains is to remain above that 13,472 support level. Watch for whether we see a break below 80 on the stochastic as a possible sign that momentum could be reversing.
