After DAX was reported to be one of the weaker stock markets compared to other major global indices last week, it has failed to muster regaining experience over the recent Britain’s vote, leaving the European Union, which highlighted an insight as to where “sellers are living”.
As it has managed to push through an area of resistance in a range of mid-9600s, DAX has lost its momentum amid Friday/Monday’s session and was followed by an area of resistance in the 9730/820 zone.
The slump from resistance has sent the index to decline towards the lows extracted in the immediate aftermath of the “Brexit” vote, suggesting a weak market.
Subsequently, as the trend structure remained unclean, there were several lower highs and lower lows seen that continue to weigh.
If low prices will persist, the trend is expected to mature itself in the not-too-distance future. Thus, if DAX will stay below earlier swing highs at 9812, the following lower low is anticipated to settle below 6/24 low at 9161.
Apparently, if the DAX is viewed on a bearish position given a poor technical posturing and relative weakness, picking up momentum towards the February low at 8695 is expected once a lower low will persist.
As the record highs are set in April 2015, the said momentum will continue to weigh on a downward trend. In contrary, if DAX will post higher, which is fueled by a successful retest of earlier lows, and it can halt the recent swing high, then a bullish alternative is considered.
