DAX PERFORMANCE-INDEX (.GDAXI) heading higher once again
The DAX drifted lower yesterday, following gains throughout the first trading days of 2019. However, with the price having already broken through the 76.4% retracement, it looks increasingly likely that we will push through the key 10,987 mark.
Should that occur, it would be the first higher high in eight months. As such, whether we break through that level will be a key determinant of market direction for the near term.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
The projected upper bound is: 11,189.99.
The projected lower bound is: 10,399.15.
The projected closing price is: 10,794.57.

During the past 10 bars, there have been 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 20 white candles and 30 black candles for a net of 10 black candles.
