DAX PERFORMANCE-INDEX (.GDAXI) turning lower from range resistance
The DAX appears to be at a turning point following a recent rally that has taken us back into the key resistance level of 13,310.
That level represents the highest point within the consolidation phase evident from 7 November to 19 November. Thus, with the price having reached that same level, it is interesting to see initial signs of a bearish reversal coming into play. The decline back into the 13,218 level is key here, negating the recent creation of higher lows. With that in mind, this market looks primed for a bearish turn. This bearish outlook remains in play unless we see a break through the 13,310 resistance level.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.
Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the upside.
The projected upper bound is: 13,556.83.
The projected lower bound is: 12,968.57.
The projected closing price is: 13,262.70.
A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 3 white candles and 7 black candles for a net of 4 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 28 white candles and 22 black candles for a net of 6 white candles.
A long lower shadow occurred. This is typically a bullish signal (particularly when it occurs near a low price level, at a support level, or when the security is oversold).
A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.
Three black candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three black crows, the steady downward pattern is bearish.
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 50. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 0 period(s) ago.
