A perfect investor week presented itself on the stock markets with five profitable days in a row. The DAXcatch up on its September losses and is now stable above the 13,000 mark. Is there enough power left for an autumn rally?
The start of the week brought the DAX very close to its resistance at 12,850 points, which it had already developed the week before. Already on Tuesday the leap was made and thus approached the 13,000 mark. However, it took another day of consolidation to break this mark with momentum.
Thus, a continuation of this movement could already be seen on Thursday and the 13,000 mark jumped with the start of trading. Another test was not only exciting for traders, but also an exciting brand for investors looking for direction. As an example, I traded the following re-test setup in the live trading webinar:
Short trade in the DAX as a re-test of the 13,000
The 13,000 could be established as the closing price and was no longer undercut on Friday. So there was no doubt about the positive weekly development, as the individual trading days underline again:

The following week has thus developed:
DAX development in the past trading week
Overall, the September loss could be processed and thus a considerable recovery has been manifested since April. The performance overview for the individual months shows this as follows:
DAX performance over the last few months
The movement was underpinned by the further imagination for a large stimulus package in the USA. We’re talking about $ 2 trillion here. A political agreement on this has yet to be reached, but the imagination has so far been driving the courses on a broad basis.
What can be derived from the medium-term chart image?
With the reconquest of the 13,000, the trailing edge of September 21 has been reached again and immersion into the September area takes place:
DAX in medium-term development
In the short term, this could represent resistance, although it still offers around 100 points room for the weekly trend to continue until the GAP close before the sharp downward movement.
In the short-term chart period, Friday is to be rated as the consolidation day. It did not break out above Thursday’s key data and had seen a decline in volatility. The amplitudes contract again and provide corresponding signal triggers for the new trading week:
DAX triangle at the start of the week
On the upside, as shown, the remaining price gap from mid-September to 13,116.25 points – the low and closing price on September 18 – is still attractive.
Below the triangle, the price gap on Wednesday in the course of the week, the next support and thus also a potential GAP trade is possible:

When the next US stimulus package will be adopted can be decided in the next few days. Then it would come before the election of the US president. Which dates are already firmly anchored in the calendar today?
