Charting indices: DAX resistance holds the key to European markets

IG technical analyst Josh Mahony is looking for the DAX to close above the descending trendline around 11,260 to signal upside.

On the FTSE, he says a bullish engulfing pattern could indicate we are at the bottom of this downtrend, but it is important to keep a close eye on the intraday levels.
