Wave 5 Extension on the Dax (Germany 40) ?!? Elliott wave theory




I trade the Dax and it looks like we may have a wave 5 extension unfolding. From what I can find on the internet it suggests a FIB Ratio of 1.618 from wave 1 to 3 (on the primary cycle) which either starts from the end of wave 4 or from the top of wave 3. This means that the target for for the Dax is either at 22,000 or 24,000. I know this sounds insane but if you look at the monthly chart (attached) it seem to fit nicely in to a channel trend line dating back to March 2015. Accordingly, it also means that we can expect a massive crash at that point which fits in well with the bear narrative that has been going on for a while now. 

I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this? Also - if we are having a wave 5 extension, does anyone have advice on what to expect when trading it? 

Thank you

Hi @JustinCamm

Thanks for sharing

Below from our analysts:

DAX 40 once again trades at record highs

The DAX 40 index seems to be unstoppable as it rallies to yet another record high around the 17,600 mark as the latest earnings season highlighted that European stocks remain undervalued compared to their American counterparts with regards to Price-to-Earnings (PE) ratios. This has attracted further investment in Europe’s largest economy as Germany’s consumer morale also improves slightly.

Minor support is seen along the accelerated uptrend line at 17,464. Above the current record high at 17,607 lies the 18,000 region.

    • I have not been a fan of either of exchanges and wallets native tokens but would wanna explore it now. I took interest from the current hype around BNB, OKB and BGB. These tokens particularly BNB and BGB has shown strength which is obviously due to increase in demand to take part in the most of the launchpool. BNB rose almost 80% in the past 1 year, BGB was on the spotlight with about 190% in a year. OKB may not be left out due to it's potential but has made any significant movement recently. Wallet tokens on the hand have also been doing well but may not be compared to Centralized exchanges imho; I have also monitored few wallet particularly trust wallet and C98 wallet. My best guess is we could be seeing the wallet tokens making impressive price action as we approach post halving due to increase in transactions and I wonder if any one here is considering the prospect BWB token for Bitget wallet. Launching pretty soon and airdrop participation in play. I would appreciate your speculative opinion on it potentials.
    • In the realm of cryptocurrency exchanges, playing by the rules isn’t just a suggestion—it’s a must for staying in the game. Most major centralized exchanges (CEXs) strive to adhere to these regulations, implementing measures to prevent money laundering and illicit activities. However, a recent controversy has emerged with BingX, a top CEX, defying US sanctions by allowing Iranian users full access to its platform. BingX facilitates Iranian Rial trading, directly violating US sanctions. They allow Iranian users to trade cryptocurrencies without KYC verification. This, along with offering peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions using Iranian fiat currency, further raises red flags. This incident is reminiscent of the past troubles faced by giants like Binance, who were caught facilitating transactions for sanctioned individuals, resulting in a $4.5 billion plea deal with US authorities in 2023. The question remains: will this defiance by BingX lead to its downfall? Regulatory bodies in the US, like the SEC or DOJ, might take action.However, the severity of the situation raises questions about the long-term viability of the exchange and whether it may face the prospect of closure or severe penalties for its actions. As governments grapple with the complexities of digital assets, CEXs that prioritize expansion over compliance will likely face increasing scrutiny and potential consequences.  
    • The exchange continues to offers it's  users significant opportunities through its ecosystem products like PoolX and Launchpool.
