Dusseldorf The German stock market had the opening of a daily high, the brand of 13,000 points again in sight. The daily high was 12,951 points. But then spontaneous sales set in without negative news. The Dax quickly slipped to 12,826 points, a difference to the daily high of 125 points.

The US Federal Reserve delivered yesterday: it cut the key rate again, but now signals a break, However, after the US and China have come closer and a hard Brexit is less likely, according to Fed chief Jerome Powell moves now some in a "positive direction". "In short, the Fed is now sounding neutral and there is a break first, this year is nothing more," say the foreign exchange analysts Commerzbank,
After the interest rate decision, the euro appreciated significantly against the dollar and continued this trend on Thursday. Currently, the European common currency is trading at $ 1,1175.
The reason: Powell clarified that the Fed is not thinking of raising interest rates. "The Fed remains cautious, interest rate cuts are still more likely than interest rate hikes, which is why dollar strength is inappropriate," say the Commerzbank analysts. "Should US data also disappoint in the coming weeks, expectations that the Fed will continue to decline will increase and the dollar will come under pressure accordingly."
At first glance The German leading index seems ripe for a correction: In the top more than nine percent plus since October 4, added the new high for the year with 12,986 points from last Monday.

The survey also shows: Private investors are hoping for "more", while the institutional counterparts seem more likely to hedge of the already achieved considerable profits. "Of course, in the hope, in the case of significant resetting the Dax once more able to get in better," says the behavioral economist. The question, of course, is: what happens if the Frankfurt benchmark consolidates at this high level, currently at 12,800 / 12,900 points? Will the investor professionals get back in fast and fire up the rally?
Overall, the situation for the German benchmark index has improved, as demand for the new pessimists is expected to be greater with larger resets, possibly between 12,550 and 12,600.

What the charting says
The Dax continues to target the 13,000 mark mark. On Monday this week, the leading index narrowly missed the target. With 12,986 points, the Frankfurt benchmark was able to mark a new high for the year.
Investors should plan further price losses in the near term should the index fall below 12,800 points. On yesterday's trading day was at 12,830 meters, previous low since the new high for the year, again high demand to see the market. Strategic investors should stop their exposures on the basis of the old outbreak brands at just under 12,500 points. According to charting technology, this area is now considered an important area of resistance.
As long as the German defaults consolidate at this high level and defend the range of 12,500 points, the index should surpass the 13,000 point mark this year.
An important support below 12,500 points is the 200-day line, a gauge of the long-term uptrend, which is currently trading at 11,965 points and rising by around ten points per day. It would not be uncommon for the Dax to fall close to this line during a major correction that is likely to be due to significant gains in the coming days or weeks.
