DAX Market analysis, January 2020

DAX Market analysis, January 2020

14 January 2020

DAX ended the year 2019 with close to +-0 result in December. We had volatile days in early December and the month did not start bullish. However, the bears did not manage to gain control over the market and bulls took back the early losses towards the end of the month, partially due to re-emerging positivity for trade deal between USA and China. 

First days of 2020 have been a mixed plate; markets seemed to want to continue the move upwards but new conflict between Iran and USA turned markets fast into higher volatility mode and the shorter term trends are beginning to show first signs of market weakness. 

DAX longer term trend is still bullish, measured with the moving averages EMA6 and EMA12 and the faster EMA6 is also still above EMA12. DAX tested EMA6 level within a few points now in the beginning of January. Intradays are somewhat volatile currently and if the market fears continue for the coming 1-2 weeks, a test of EMA12 (currently at 12550) could take place. The yearly pivot point found at 12350 is not that far away from the EMA12 and if DAX decides to test EMA12, it is likely that the yearly pivot is being tested at the same time.

The longer term trend is still bullish, measured with moving averages, and if the tension in the middle east eases up and market gets back on the bullish track, a likely target for testing during 2020 is the pivot resistance 1 (R1) found at 13340. The yearly pivot support 1 is found at 11300. As long as DAX manages to stay above EMA12 on the monthly chart it is in bullish territory. Vice versa, bulls should be extra cautious if DAX start to trade below this moving average.

A bearish case could be that DAX forms a double market top and bears start to take control over the markets. The resistance level 13450 is an interesting level to watch more closely on the shorter term trending charts in near future.

Long term trend support levels: 12550, 12350
Long term trend resistance levels: 13450, 14340

Below the weekly chart with monthly pivots plotted. The monthly pivot is at 13200, resistance1 (R1) at 13480 and support 1 (S1) at 12960. DAX has already tested the pivot point and S1 level and currently it seems more likely that we could test S2 during January. The moving average EMA6 is still above EMA12, thus the trend still seems bullish.

Mid term resistance levels: 13400, 13480
Mid term support levels: 12960, 12650

The investor sentiment in USA is on the bullish side but the sentiment got a hit during the last poll and is now declining a bit. The volatility is not yet indicating any bigger red flags.
