After a weak start and a setback to 12,720 points, the DAX® initially turned upwards. At 12,850 points, however, the bulls ran out of breath and the bears finally had the last word. The support at 12,700 points remains intact. This means that there is still a chance of recovery up to 12,900 points. A significant movement up or down, however, is indicated at the earliest with a breakout of the 12,600 and 12,900 points range.
