In the macroeconomic calendar for January 11, we see publications of industrial production in the euro area and minutes from the December meeting of the ECB. Strong data from Eurozone so far help DAX in 2018 (the index gains YTD 2.2%). If this trend continues today, we should be witnessing another bullish impulse.
Positive fundaments, however, do not reflect the technical layout. DAX prices closed on the daily chart below December’s highs and 13333 level Its re-test from the bottom may be for sellers a signal to deepen the correction after six sessions of uninterrupted increases.
