European stocks vulnerable – EURO STOXX 50 and DAX forecast

  • The global financial markets “risk on” theme has been damaged since last Thursday’s selloffs across global stock indices.
  • Despite Friday rebounds, Monday has seen a renewal of negative forces attempting to resume the larger bear theme from September.
  • Risk off” is being driven by:
    • Fading hopes of a US economic relief package before the US elections
    • Surging COVOD-19 cases across Europe
    • More aggressive lockdown measures throughout Europe
    • Risks of no trade deal between the UK and EU
  • Here we look at the German and pan-European benchmark averages, the DAX and the EURO STOXX 50.

DAX day trade outlook: Negative bias resumes

Day trade update and view

A Friday-Monday rebound above 12850/860 and 12949/951 resistances, to then stall below 13052.5 at 13018 and then to significantly sell-off below 12800/780 supports to resume negative forces from last Thursday’s plunge through multiple supports, to keep the threat to the downside Tuesday.

Day trade setup

  • We see a downside bias for 12708.5/691; a break here aims for 12581.5 and 12521 lows, possibly towards 12400/390.
  • But above 12886 opens risk up to 13018 and 13052.5, possibly 13163.

DAX intermediate-term outlook

The late September sell-off below 12625.5 signalled an intermediate-term shift to a broader range seen as 12199.5 to 13244.5/279.

  • Downside risks: Below 12199.5 sets an intermediate-term bear trend to target 11589.5, 10856.5 and 10159/10000.
  • Upside risks: Above 13244.5/279 sets an intermediate-term bull trend to target 13461, 13824 and maybe 15000.
