At the risk of precipitating another condescending lecture about how we shouldn't look for turns and how there is only ONE way to trade @Kodiak let me say I agree with you that a turn on the Dax is on the cards.  The Fib 88% is lurking just above current price so a jump to that level is possible to complete a large time frame wave 2 retrace.  There is always the possibility of a double top on the Dax and we cannot yet discount a break through to another ATH but this would be the first non US large cap market to do so...

You have to ask what is driving the Dax though.  Unlike the US, where there is much debate about when we will see a recession or how strong the economy actual is (not very of you look at the data trends with a balanced view rather than a perma bull bias) or if it will only be another manufacturing recession a la 2015/6, Germany is in recession.  The only answer can be that the ECB keep churning out the **** and the Dax addicst keeps lapping it up and perhaps more pertinently the other World indices are being propped up by the US large caps.  So for a turn to happen we probably need to see one on US large caps too.

That said there is no reason why the European indices can't make a move before the US markets open.

We could see a fast move up on the Dax to test that Fib 88% before a drop or a drop from where we are.  Whichever happens, for me we have two scenarios that would play out as a result (excluding a breakout)as follows:

  1. This top is the wave 2 turn and the next move would be a 1 down, 2 up to produce a lower high
  2. This turn is not yet the top of this move and we see a final rally (maybe the famous Santa rally) to close out the move and begin the Great Bear.

Issue for me is that until I see the US large caps top out I would not be confident of any other market topping.  And therein lies the main problem with the bearish set up, there isn't one triggered yet, they are all still in progress.  So my approach is to watch and wait for the triggers across all the main indices.  Can't comment on your Williams indicator as I don't use it but we do have negative momentum divergence building on most time frames, low volume and the Vix is shaping to breakout to the upside so while there isn't a specific trigger for me for a Short yet the case is gathering.

Possible small scale 1H chart megaphone formation that could signal a reversal.  Also top out signs on all US large caps plus Nasdaq just broke below the recent low on opening.  Not conclusive until there is a close below but worth watching.  NMD at the top (all markets actually) and turn just below that Fib 88% I was tracking.  Add to that the Russell 2000 has punched lower on decent volume and the Vix looks like it is setting up for a rally...

    • As the crypto sector undergoes transformation, Asia emerges as a formidable player alongside the established giants of the US and Europe. With significant investments and a growing user base, the region's potential for dominance is unmistakable. Leading this movement is Dubai, pioneering crypto adoption with its favorable regulations, attracting crypto exchanges focused on the region. A standout in this field is Bitget, Asia's largest web3 wallet provider, boasting a user base of over 19 million. Through regular events, Bitget cultivates community engagement, recognizing and rewarding the trust and loyalty of its users. One such event, the ongoing "Bitget Super Savings," offers over $20,000 worth of hot tokens across various categories, providing users with an opportunity to enrich their crypto portfolios. For those in South Asia, Bitget extends an invitation to participate in this ongoing event. Seize the chance to earn free hot tokens before the event concludes on April 26th. Good luck!
    • It is ideal that crypto currency exchanges as the admisnistrators of users’ funds should account to them from time to time through transparency reports that can be drafted atleast at the end of every quarter.  Platforms like Bitget have dropped theirs and their growth is pretty impressive. Both spot and derivative volume have grown exponentially. This is a testament to the fact that the team has been doing the good work. In Q1 of 2024, the CEX’s spot trading volume increased by a whopping 113% peaking about $160 billion and the futures trading volume was at about $1.4 trillion signalling a 146% increase.  In march, the platform witnessed the most remarkable growth thus far in the derivative market making it the 3rd largest derivative trading platform for the first time since december 2022.  The user base has also trumped up from the previous 20 million to 25 million users globally.  This demonstrates pure positive social sentiment and traction. In a similar vein, through the course of the previous quarter, the platform added about 186 new tokens, this has placed its number of tokens at 750+ tokens available and 820+ spot tokens.  Most of the listings were relatively very early and some investors made fortunes off it. The launchpool has also witnessed impressive growth, a total of 7 launchpools were done and this led to an increased demand for its native token $BGB. $Bgb has been on steroids since the last quarter, breaking ATHs and establishing new ones. Bitget applauds consistency and security, its Proof of reserve has also grown to about $612 million since March. With this type of security framework users confidence will be instilled to further use Bitget. Here's some proof of the above; https://twitter.com/TokenInsight/status/1767010819282526267
    • While browsing the web today, I stumbled upon the Apu Apustaja site, captivated by its melodious music and perfect rhythm. Intrigued, I delved into the project. APU stands out as a community-driven memecoin that emerged from the fallout of a rug-pulled project. Through unwavering dedication and transparency, the community resurrected APU, propelling it to become one of the fastest-growing memecoins, boasting a market capitalization of over $115M according to CoinMarketCap. A closer look reveals APU's ambitious aim: to emulate and surpass the success of PEPE. With leading exchanges like Bitget now listing APU, exposing it to a wider audience, it seems only a matter of time before this gem reaches a market cap of $500M or even $1B. What are your thoughts on this project? I encourage you to explore their website to get a firsthand glimpse of what I'm talking about.
