The left chart show's the GER30 daily heikin ashi (HA) candles. Over the last six trading sessions, the index has battled and failed to overcome overhead resistance around the 14,550 level (red shaded horizontal). HA candles are trend-following in nature, and the latest candle has turned red after the index reaction off of resistance - a bearish development
The righthand hourly chart has bearish signals. The EMAs have turned down, and the stochastic has crossed negatively (black ellipses). If the stochastic falls below 20 (blue arrow) and holds that position, the GER30 index will be under pressure.
