FTSE, DAX Technical Outlook: UK and EU Equities Start the Week Higher

FTSE, DAX TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

  • UK and EU equities rise on peace talks optimism
  • FTSE clears 7000 with ease but a pullback around 7225 threatens to derail bulls
  • DAX 40 provides a strong start to the week – bullish and bearish possibilities considered
FTSE, DAX Technical Outlook: UK and EU Equities Start the Week Higher

European and UK indices seem to have turned the corner as the bounce off the recent lows would suggest. The proximity to the Ukraine invasion and the Germany’s reliance on Russian energy accelerated the downtrend as the DAX plunged 20% lower than the November high.

Similarly, the FTSE is well above its low and now well above the psychological 7000 level. The FTSE however, did not decline 20% from its high and therefore avoided a technical bear market.

FTSE ANALYSIS AND KEY TECHNICAL LEVELS

In general, European equity markets appear optimistic after Putin mentioned on Friday that recent talks showed ‘positive shifts’ with delegates who are expected to resume talks today.

Looking at the FTSE chart, the RSI has proven rather reliable in preceding bullish reversals but has not had the same effect when it comes to bearish reversals, meaning levels of resistance may provide a better idea of when short term bullish momentum may slow down. For example, today and Friday we witnessed price action trade well above 7225 only to retrace back below it. Ending the day below 7225 suggests that this is a level that bears find attractive, pushing prices towards the psychological level at 7000. However, a break and hold above 7225, opens the door to the bullish continuation with 7306 and 7405 the next levels of resistance.

DAX 40 ANALYSIS AND KEY TECHNICAL LEVELS

Friday witnessed an incredibly volatile day of trading with the DAX rising above the zone of resistance (13600 -13800) only to fall back below it. Today however, German equities have started the week on a positive note, trading above the zone, which now acts as support.

As mentioned, news of diplomatic progress has supported European equities and opens the door to a bullish continuation. A pullback towards 13800 and subsequent advance would bring 14190 and 14408 into focus as the nearest levels of resistance.

The bullish outlook would need to be re-evaluated should 13600 fail to hold. European equities still remain highly reactive to news out of Ukraine and any sudden set back in talks could easily derail the bullish momentum.

An invalidation of the bullish move would see 13210 as the nearest level of support.

    • DogeDay always brings back memories of 2019 when my friends were diving into Dogecoin and joining farming activities. That's why I'm excited to explore the Bitget DogeDay giveaway event. Plus, with tomorrow's BTC halving, the excitement is doubled!
    • As a meme fan, I have been waiting patiently for the Bull trend that happened to BTC recently to get to all the alts and so we can have what we had back then in 2021 to happen again, but time the strength of the uptrend has not been able to match up with what I am expecting and I do hope that the halving will help, but looking at the hype that is usually expected from the meme community. I don't think I'll be able to wait for the trend to resume and so I am taking more steps ahead of the game, taking up all the opportunities I believe would help the price-trend of my holdings, especially for the DOGE memes and I have found this DOGEDAY event ongoing and it really made a lot of sense to me, because if we look at how the DOGE coins have performed in the past. I believe if we can have a Bitcoin day to celebrate the first cryptocurrency, then we should be able to have a DOGEDAY too looking at the success rate of the meme and the support from the community. For me, this is something special that is worth the energy, vibes and hype and worth participating it. There are different sections to the event, which include the Twitter part, where Bitget is sharing $3,00 to those participating( https://twitter.com/bitgetglobal/status/1780495739984150962Twitter Post ) and the telegram event, and I believe this will favour those that love to bet on the price of coins. They are sharing 100BGB tokens for this and the Discord event has a 90BGB token to be shared.  If we can have Bitcoin's day, then this DOGEDAY should be observed in all the DOGE communities and I will admonish meme lovers to observe events like this because it reflects the nature of memecoin and the hype around it.
