DAX Market Review, March 2019

DAX Market Review, March 2019

06 March 2019

DAX advanced in February ~2,9% and thus DAX has now gained from the start of the year almost +9%. The volatility is currently significantly lower, except for the two first weeks in February when we saw some rougher swings. Also intraday, small dips have been almost instantly bought. These are all bullish signs, although we have severe resistance levels ahead and the bigger picture is still technically a bit ugly.

DAX has also climbed over the 6 months exponential moving average (EMA6) and on top of that, EMA6 is also advancing. The most interesting levels in March are 11300, which is the Pivot Point for March, 11770 which is Pivot Resistance 1 and 12000 which is Pivot Resistance 2 level.

On the weekly chart, which is the mid term trend, DAX is making higher highs and higher lows which makes the trend for the mid term bullish, althouhg DAX is still in a declining regression channel. Also on the daily chart, which is the short term trend, the trend is up. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a bit high on the daily chart and thus we should expect consolidation or pullback in the near term future. If DAX pulls back, 11400 is the first level of support. 11300 is a more important support level for the mid and longer term and it would be bearish if DAX started to trade below this level.

Long term trend support levels: 11400, 1300, 11180
Long term trend resistance levels: 11770,12000

On the weekly chart, which is the mid term trend (chart below), DAX is still in a declining regression channel (blue and red channel on chart) but DAX the bearish mood has clearly lighten up and DAX has made “new highs” several weeks in a row. The area 11770 / 12000 is interesting for the mid term and most likely an more important resistance area.

Support levels: 11500, 11400, 11300
Resistance levels: 11770, 12000
