From a statistical point of view the year-end rally will start on December 19th and ends on January 6th. The investors are now waiting for this strong market phase.

Currently the DAX is in a correction phase. The trend line at 9425 and the weighted moving average (200 days) at 9484 are being tested at this moment. Above the mentioned levels there are some resistances on the daily chart e.g. the Fibonacci retracements at 9618, 9735 and 9878 and the trend line at 9794/9795. The year-end rally could help the DAX to reach the resistance at 10,016/10,048 and the new historic high at 10,093.

Below the supports at 9484 and 9425 the current consolidation could be continued. In this worst case scenario the trend line at 8982/8952 would be the next target.
