The DAX had a good week: the rate hike and recession in the US seem to be in the price. DAX and Nasdaq ended July very positively.
DAX investors will dare again
The DAX week was mainly accompanied by a side phase, which showed the estimate of market participants for the Fed’s interest rate hike and important GDP data. We’ve talked enough about the data itself. YES, there is a recession in the US and YES, in Germany there is no growth in the second quarter. However, prices went up.
After the temporary DAX consolidation back to 13,100 points, the market gained momentum. By the way, there were also corresponding long signals that we traded in the live broadcast:
The triangle from the consolidation phase to Thursday could thus have been resolved and continued on Friday (review):
Technically speaking, the 13,400 resistance area was on the agenda we also talked about (early week photo):
Following positive quarterly data from Apple and Amazon (see Friday morning video), the index looked at this area directly in the pre-market stage, consolidated shortly thereafter, and then skipped it at lunchtime. Further positive US data from the Dow Jones heavyweight companies such as Chevron and Exxon Mobil, which recorded quarterly highs, restored investor confidence.
We managed to overcome the resistance area and thus create another positive signal:
The market closed very clearly in the positive territory. What does this mean in general and what are the international markets?
DAX view in an international environment
Beating 13,400, the DAX generated another positive signal. Incidentally, the Nasdaq looks similar:
Subsequent purchases may take place at the beginning of the week and month.
Overall, the Nasdaq was positive for the third consecutive week and clearly outperformed other indices, including the DAX:
The US market in particular has shown that it focuses more on big companies like Apple and Amazon than on recession or even interest rates. Now the task is to check if it will only last a few days or if the shopping spree will last longer.
As for the DAX itself, I believe Friday’s strong growth is intact. Until the trendline breaks through since Thursday, when negative US GDP anchored the recession, we can take a quick look at 13,600 and GAP above:
If the price drops below 13,400 early in the week, I assume it’s a bull trap and will be on the short side.
I explain it in more detail in the video for this analysis here:
This brings us directly to today’s meetings.
Dates of the new trading week

Of course, key data from the economic calendar is also available again. I have only anchored the most important cornerstones as we will move on to the dates on the individual days.
Monday retail sales from Germany are important. On Wednesday, ADP figures from a private employment agency from the US. Interest rate decision by the Bank of England on Thursday, followed by the official US employment report on Friday.
