DAX 30 Bias
DAX Bearish below 13055.
The DAX30 index is currently showing a progressive series of lower lows and lower highs. The trend defining level is currently 13055, so the market remains bearish below that level. In order for the market to remain bearish, we need to take out 12739. I will be looking to use the DAX trading strategy to provide some useful setups today.

As for my index trading; during the last trading session I took a total of 4 trades (2 DAX trades and 2 FTSE trades). Breaking down my DAX trades, 1 was from the DAX trading strategy (DTI) and 1 was from the regular morning DAX signal. Breaking down my FTSE trades, 1 was from the FTSE trading strategy (Using the DAX DTI) and 1 was from the regular morning FTSE signal. Overall, I hit 0 winners, 0 losers, and closed 2 trades early. This gave me a total profit of 3.9% for the day (including the trades I closed around 8pm).
