GER30 finds support after Chinese data disappoints

  • GER30

The GER30 has shaken off some of the risk-off sentiment after China's quarterly GDP came in lower than expected – 6.3% vs 7.1%

Daily Chart (left chart)

  • The daily candle (still to complete) is a dragonfly doji (blue arrow). Bears lost control at the candle's low, and bulls have pushed price back up as they exert control.
  • The candlestick is in the bullish channel between the upper blue and red bands.
  • The RSI has oscillated around 50 over the last month (blue rectangle).
  • If the RSI can maintain above 50 (black rectangle), an underlying bullish support will be present and supportive of the daily GER30.

Hourly Chart (right chart)

  • Price has found a confluence of support – the S1 pivot which overlaps with price support (red shaded horizontal).
  • The trend-following EMAs and the momentum-based stochastic have both crossed up (black ellipses).
  • If the EMAs develop angle and separation to the upside and the stochastic settles above the 80+ levels (green arrow), the hourly GER30 chart will have an underlying bullish momentum.
