Trade update: DAX trade idea

The DAX is showing signs of turning around and with 60 points in the bag, it seems a good place to reduce exposure.

The DAX has rallied relatively consistently since we put out the bullish trade idea, based upon the break through 10,121. However, we are seeing signs that a reversal lower could be in the offing.

The weekly chart shows that price has come into a cluster of moving averages, with the 50-week simple moving average in particular sparking the last top in April.

The failure to create a new high and subsequent break to the downside also provides a hint that we may see a strong move lower from these areas. For that reason, it makes sense to cut gains short with such major event risk ahead this week.
