Dax turning down?


Mercury

Recommended Posts

Is the Dax joining the FTSE in a turn?  Can't tell yet if this could be a major market turn or just a retrace before another rally phase but is turning at resistance zone with a credible A-B-C retrace form to the rally and neg Mom Div on Daily, 4 Hourly and hourly.

 

Alternative big picture path on Daily chart in red labels.

 

Anyone got a view on the Dax or stock indices generally?

Been analysing the DAX for a while as well as the FTSE and I don't know what views people hold on if we will make new highs or not, however, looking at the DAX currently it does appear that we could be riding C wave. What I have however observed is that we are closely approaching the 88.6% retracement level which is ( around 11120 level area), no divergence on daily as of yet, but thought this may be worth a close watch regardless. P.S Mercury I have only just realised after posting this a moment ago, similar levels have been matched on your analysis too, I promise I did not copy your analysis, but do share similar views.Germany 30 (DFB).png

HI , if you are using similar analytical tools it is not surprising you would have similar results so no worries.  It is better I guess if several people come to a similar conclusion independently but we can't help being influenced by others.  One reason I like to discuss things with day traders like  is that when we come to a similar conclusion using different methods and trading on different timelines then there is usually something of interest.  When we disagree that is also interesting and gives pause for thought, no bad thing.

 

On the Dax I agree with your overall assessment however I dislike relying on the 88.6% Fib, it is a highly unusual turning point.  62% is the most common, closely followed by the 50%.  This is not an accident in by view as the 62% forms the so-called "Golden Ratio", something we are drawn to naturally and subconsciously.

 

On my Daily chart I have 2 Fibs in operation, the first (black) is the same as yours and the market is fast approaching the 76.4% Fib, a possible turning point but so far my EWT count (on lower time frames and on other markets) doesn't yet support a turn here.  I also have a Fib from the 12,411 high (Purple), which reveals a 62% fib line at the top of my resistance zone.  This is my lead scenario for a turn in Wave C (the second red circle).

 

You will also notice that there are many A-B-C structures in the long term move, this is supportive of a larger A-B-C rather than a motive wave, as we have with the US markets.  However at present we cannot 100% discount that this morphs into a motive wave and so I still have my 2 scenario large scale count (purple labels).  I am highly skeptical that this is a large scale final wave 5 as that would mean we have only just begun a wave 3, which would then run way beyond the 12,411 high.  I just can't see that yet, given where the US markets are.  So for now I am sticking with my forecast that FTSE and DAX are in retrace and may signal a US top.  Nikkei too is in retrace not motive.  If we see retrace points on these 3 markets at a place where a US large cap end is possible (from a technical analysis POV) then that could get interesting.

 

This is all somewhat academic for me just now as I will probably not seek to trade a possible US top on stock indices, rather I'll wait for a confirmed turn, unless a very low risk opportunity presents itself.  But chasing the top is a sure way to losses so better to play it cool in my view.  I will continue to analyse it and discuss it with anyone who wants to of course.  Meanwhile there are lower risk set ups elsewhere just now.  This is a risk management game after all...

Hi Mercury, and yes as you say, by using similar analytical tools, quite often we do end up with the same conclusion. From a fundamental point of view, these indices seem to have their bullish momentum driven by cheap money handed out by central banks, with a low interest environment and low bond yields, indices are being artificially inflated in a low growth environment, which spells potential disaster in the long run for bulls. However this will take time before its realised that no amount of cheap money will solve some of the most crucial economic issues, but until that happens, no point calling tops, just sit and wait and look for others for now or trade of course some intraday-opportunities whenever they are spelled out for us.

    • An uneasy calm has settled over global markets as traders wait for new inflation data later this week, which will provide clues about the interest rate outlooks in the U.S. and Europe. While Asian markets were subdued overall, there were some bright spots. New Zealand's central bank signaled a slightly less aggressive stance on rate hikes, sparking a rally in bonds and a dip in the Kiwi dollar. South Korean shares continued their relentless February rally, lifted by AI enthusiasm and moves to boost shareholder returns. The main events this week will be the U.S. inflation report on Thursday and the eurozone numbers on Friday, which are expected to drive market direction in the coming days. For now, caution prevails, with European and U.S. futures pointing to a muted open.

Now blue wave 1 of black wave 2 is in play .Wave Cancel invalid level: 0.64434 The "AUDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart" dated 28 February 24, provides a comprehensive analysis of the Australian Dollar/U.S. Dollar (AUDUSD) currency pair within the framework of Elliott Wave theory. The analysis is conducted on the daily chart. The identified "FUNCTION" is "Trend," signifying a focus on identifying and participating in the prevailing market direction. This suggests a strategic approach to capitalize on sustained and directional movements in the market. The specified "MODE" is "Impulsive," indicating that the market is currently characterized by strong, forceful, and directional price movements. This environment is conducive to trend-following strategies. The described "STRUCTURE" is "Blue wave 1," denoting the specific wave within the Elliott Wave hierarchy. Blue wave 1 typically represents the initial phase of a larger impulsive move, suggesting the commencement of a new trend. The identified "POSITION" is "Black wave 3," indicating the current position within the broader Elliott Wave pattern. Black wave 3 is usually a powerful and extended wave within the impulse sequence, reflecting a strong and sustained trend. Regarding "DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES," the focus is on "Blue wave 2," suggesting the anticipated correction within the larger impulsive move (Black wave 3). This correction is expected to be a temporary pullback against the prevailing trend. The "DETAILS" section notes that "Black wave 2 looking completed at 0.64434. Now blue wave 1 of black wave 2 is in play." This indicates that the corrective movement of Black wave 2 is considered concluded, and the market is now in the early stages of the next impulsive move (Blue wave 1). The "Wave Cancel invalid level" is set at 0.64434, serving as a critical reference point. A breach beyond this level would invalidate the current wave count and prompt a reevaluation of the analysis. In summary, the AUDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis for the daily chart on 28 February 24, suggests the completion of a corrective phase (Black wave 2) and the initiation of a new impulsive move (Blue wave 1). Traders are advised to monitor the invalidation level at 0.64434 for potential shifts in the wave count.           AUDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour  Chart, 28 February 24 Australian Dollar/U.S.Dollar (AUDUSD) 4 Hour Chart AUDUSD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE:red wave 2 POSITION: blue wave 1 DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES:red wave 3 DETAILS: red wave 2  is in play and looking near to end  between fib level 50.00 to 61.80 .

The specified "MODE" is "Impulsive," suggesting that the market is currently characterized by strong, forceful, and directional price movements. This environment is conducive to identifying and participating in the primary trend. The described "STRUCTURE" is "Red wave 2," denoting the specific wave within the Elliott Wave hierarchy. Red wave 2 typically represents a corrective phase following an impulsive move, suggesting a temporary counter-trend movement. The identified "POSITION" is "Blue wave 1," indicating the current position within the broader Elliott Wave pattern. Blue wave 1 typically represents the initial phase of a larger impulsive move, signifying the beginning of a new trend. In terms of "DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES," the analysis emphasizes "Red wave 3," suggesting the anticipation of the next sub-wave within the broader Elliott Wave structure, which would follow the completion of red wave 2. The "DETAILS" section notes that "Red wave 2 is in play and looking near to end between fib level 50.00 to 61.80. After that, red wave 3 will start." This suggests that the corrective movement of red wave 2 is expected to conclude soon, with a likely impulsive move (red wave 3) to follow.
