-> had been passed now - heading next for 6666 and then 6750 soon

..yesterday's foreseen scenario continued to develop today - bullish - 6666 already passed - 6750 in sight
some resistance around 6850 to have in mind

Dax upmove today without closing the gap til' now.
Level of 6750 broken too (high of 6771).
Will be interesting for the coming days.
Still having 6850 as resistance level.

Bigger picture July20

Today the upmovement in the Dax was not discussed by me in detail.
To get some more insight - I was using the daily chart of the Dax with
a fib spiral - the upper resistance level was to find for today @ 6780.
That would be the maximum stretch for a stop in our daily Dax trade.
Admitting that the start of todays intraday Dax movement for a friday
was not really fitting the normal plan - our bigger picture shows that
the turning point was @ 6781 and the time window was only shifted
two hours to the right.
So - even being to early - the trade was a runner.
Here the bigger picture (part of the daily chart):

The today's scenario was quite predictible - as the Monday morning started with
a big gap down - it was obvious the price had to move up intrady to the red
TenkanSen and eventually moves down to the blue KijunSen.
The movement underneath KijunSen happened as an exaggeration as the US
market opened. For the Dax future closing (US) the price came back on KijunSen.

Now price is back withinin the blue bullish cloud again. Expecting some move out
north within a week.

Tuesday trade


Today NO trade as yesterday's move (Hi/ Low) exceeded the
range that the system allows.
