Summary of the session 15/08/2018
Yesterday’s session on the German index took place definitely showed the power of supply – the index drop from the last support took place on a large volume and visible pressure. Although the first trading hours did not indicate the possibility of such large movements, breaking the 12,320 support – which was crucial for the whole system from the perspective of the last three trading days – triggered a move of 230 points. In total, the daily candle closed with a movement of 320 points.
Today’s session will be mainly rebounding the yesterday’s declines. A small gap to the top and the PV daily level test shows a timid attempt to test the power of demand. Nevertheless, for the bearish system, which is unquestionably maintaining the chart below the level of 12,320 – the level that was broken yesterday and which caused a dynamic drop – the downward trend will last.
Only an exit above this level can mean a short-term negation of the downward sequence. Today’s session will, therefore, be under a further bearish sign and each approach to the resistance area, ie 12.230 / 12.300, should be used to attempt to join the trend with the target for descending to the new low.
