DE40: DAX returns above support level 📌

12:52 19 January 2024

DAX (DAX 40) continued its stabilization on Friday, following a positive trend set by Wall Street. Midday saw the leading German index slightly up by 0.11% at 16730 points, buoyed by the US stock markets' noticeable rise in late trading the previous day. Despite a recent rally at the end of 2023, fading hopes for imminent interest rate cuts had previously slowed the DAX's momentum. After three consecutive days of losses, the DAX saw a slight recovery on Thursday, although it remains around 400 points below its December record of about 17,000 points. 

DAX price is supported by a good session on Wall Street. Today, the index has gained a modest 0.12%. However, this was enough to return above the support zone we wrote about yesterday. Currently, the bulls are facing the intersection of the 50-session and 200-session SMA averages.
