Wirecard are gone and Delivery Hero have arrived. Well, they’ve been around for some time, but they take Wirecard’s place on the DAX. The company is growing rapidly in the Middle East, Asia and North Africa. In Europe only in Northern and Eastern European countries. So it makes next to zero money in Germany and has little growth potential… very odd. They have Strong start this morning already, breaking up above the Friday high. Assuming the market pulls back at some point during today’s session, let’s see if the market can hold 12879 which is Friday’s point of control.
Good morning traders, it’s Monday the 24th of August and time for today’s 24-8-2020 German DAX 30 analysis.
DAX 30 Review From Last Session
During the last session, we saw the DAX 30 find a session high of 12940 and a session low of 12629 giving us a range of 311 points compared to the average daily range of 217. At the close of play last session, the market closed at 12795 which was 657 points above the 200EMA and 216 points above the 50EMA.
DAX 30 Bias
The DAX is currently Neutral.
The DAX Index index is currently Neutral with no specific trend. In fact we are pretty much range bound between 12629 and 13054, so we can either look to fade the two extremes assuming the range trading continues, or wait for a breakout above 13054 or below 12629. It’s a massive range and only exists because this morning we broke the bearish trend-defining levels. So right now the market has little directional bias. A range trading strategy may prove most effective until a new trend asserts itself.
