Given the noisy background of fear-mongering emanating from US politics, this is a solid performance. The uptrend remains entirely intact.
In my last update I noted a new, isolated obstacle on the path towards my major target at 8972. I found this by adding a line to the chart representing an 8.33% rise from the minor low in early September, a Gann-percentage that will often trigger a degree of short-term resistance. And so it has proved to date. As I mentioned in that note, however, a rise to 8972 is still the most likely outcome, although we should stay aware of all the obstacles along the way. I will watch this level carefully for signals on any forthcoming retest.
The DAX has a comfortable cushion beneath it before the uptrend becomes threatened. Minor support in a band defined as 8345-8373 needs to be breached before raising any concern. My current stop-loss recommendation is based precisely on this unlikely event occurring.
Recommendation: stay long. Central target 8972 (within a broader band defined as 8942-9048). The stop-loss can be activated on momentum below 8300.
