Germany: DAX PERFORMANCE-INDEX (.GDAXI) pullback likely to be short-term in nature
The DAX has been pulling back throughout the start of the week, with the price respecting trendline and the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) support this morning.
The recent rebound comes from a long-term uptrend, raising the chance that we will see the beginning of a wider recovery from here. Thus, there is a strong chance we will see another leg higher before long. With that in mind, watch for a bullish turnaround in the near future, with a break below 11,208 required to negate this bullish outlook.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
The projected upper bound is: 11,653.43.
The projected lower bound is: 10,976.59.
The projected closing price is: 11,315.01.
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 19 white candles and 31 black candles for a net of 12 black candles.
A falling window occurred (where the bottom of the previous shadow is above the top of the current shadow). This usually implies a continuation of a bearish trend. There have been 5 falling windows in the last 50 candles–this makes the current falling window even more bearish. The two candles preceding the falling window were black, which makes this pattern even more bearish.
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.
