Good morning traders, it’s Thursday the 18th of June and time for today’s German DAX 30 analysis. Perhaps we see some profit taking today as the market begins to consolidate. There has been no important news in the past few hours about the corona pandemic, which continues to have a grip on the financial markets. During the course of the day, the weekly initial applications for US unemployment benefits will include news about the US labor market that has recently been badly hit by the crisis.
DAX 30 Review From Last Session
During the last session, we saw the DAX 30 touch a session high of 12438 and a session low of 12220 giving us a range of 218 points compared to the average daily range of 360. At the close of play last session, the market closed at 12344 which was 547 points above the 200EMA and 800 points above the 50EMA.
DAX 30 Outlook
The DAX is currently Neutral.
The DAX 30 index is currently Neutral with no specific trend. In fact we are pretty much range bound between 12162 and 12439, so we can either look to fade the two extremes assuming the range trading continues, or wait for a breakout above 12439 or below 12162. The issue with a netural market, is that we can’t really use the DAX trading strategy with much positive expected value (+EV).
