GER30 weekly trend analysis has the index firmly in uptrend

  • GER30

The GER30 weekly has charted a higher trough, followed by a higher peak. This is an uptrend. Its RSI remains on the bullish side of 50 (green rectangle).

Two scenarios that will end the uptrend include:

  1. The index dropping below 13,688 (blue dashed line); it would chart a lower trough (LT1). This is a low probability event, as the index would need to drop 11% from current levels without pause.

  2. The GER30 charting a lower peak (LP), followed by a lower trough (LT) (red dashed lines). This is more plausible than scenario 1. It may also be more destructive as this scenario is a defined down trend, whereas scenario 1 ends the uptrend but does not begin a new downtrend.

We note trends persist. Pullbacks are accompanied by a narrative. However, the weekly GER30 trend is robust. A pullback in the GER30 at this point will be corrective until proven otherwise.
