DAX Crashes 9-Month Range Floor as Russia, Ukraine Crisis Deepens

 

Germany’s DAX 40 stock index punched through long-standing range support in the 14795-15046 zone, flagging what may be significant bearish escalation. The move appears to be driven by increasing angst surrounding tensions at the border between Russia and Ukraine.

The mood had been relatively upbeat at the weekly trading open as China weighed in against military action but optimism fizzled. Russian President Vladimir Putin formally recognized the independence of breakaway republics Donetsk and Luhansk in eastern Ukraine and signed a treaty of cooperation with them.

That set the stage for Russia to send troops into the contested area, in what the Kremlin called a “peacekeeping” mission. The move was promptly condemned by the European Union and the US, foreshadowing a response and setting the stage for continued instability in the region.

Sellers are testing minor support at 14406, with break below that exposing a former resistance zone now recast as support anchored at 14123. Positive RSI divergence hints that a period of digestion or perhaps even a bounce may be in the cards, however.

Any rebound from here probably needs to manage a daily close back above 15046 if selling pressure is to be neutralized in earnest. From there, overcoming the series of lower lows defined by a falling trend line set from early January could perhaps establish a genuinely constructive tone.

    • Hi, I can able to see and do pre and post market trade certain stocks such as Microsoft. However i am unable to see pre and post market trade on certain stock such as upstart holdings. However, i can see in yahoo finance that a particular stock such as upstart holding is down or up before or after market hours. How can i put or sell stocks holdings pre & post market hours for stock like upstart holdings please? Thanks in advance Vijji
    • Hi @devc It is up to the ETF issuer to provide a KID, we may not do so on your behalf. In this case, you would have to reach out to First Trust Nasdaq Cybersecurity ETF (CIBR). All the best, OfentseIG
    • Have markets any further upside to go?    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Wednesday 01 February 2023   In our regular monthly update, IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor caught up with Serge Berger, from The SteadyTrader.com, who is looking at shorting the DAX. But he says that the US dollar is key, and his best case is that this begins to pick up again after the recent drop into the support zone where it is. The obvious trade out of this is then short gold.
