After yesterday’s significant gap higher to all-time highs, the DAX is simmering in comparison. Despite the encouraging, very bullish, start, the DAX traded in an 85 point range between 13517 – 13601 according to FXCM. The price action is currently trading around the daily pivot 13564 (at the time of writing).

The gap closed from yesterday and price closed higher suggesting that the bullish momentum can continue. I am going to assume that a bullish continuation is to be the case. So what levels look interesting and what can we expect?

My bias remains bullish, I am looking for dips to buy.

I entered a trade yesterday and sent out a couple of trade ideas to the premium group. My most recent DAX trades can be seen on this page. Just be aware that I have not traded as much as normal this month.
