Why there is no new ATH in the DAX

While Asian and US indices shoot up to new ATH - the DAX doesn't.
The main reason even the industry performs very well - prices in the world markets for EU products are high.
This is because of the running up of the € versus the $.

We can see within a year a shift of 15.6% in the EURO. Yesterday the exchange price was 1.23 which is a real
brake for the DAX. This is a reason for the sideways move since quite a time.

Week 3 what will happen?

Today's up and down (means sideways) can bring up two fruitful trades tomorrow Wednesday
and maybe one on Friday.
This is because the Euro collided with the KUMO (north) and is running up again - which means in case
of the DAX some falling for the next days...
For sure - if volumes tomorrow are good, some Dax shorting might be a proposal.

Let's see

Week 3 result

Friday trade did not happen:
1) because of bad weeks 3 to 7
2) because of none of GFIs1 systems work properly during those weeks

Week 3 results
This week had 1 trade:
Negative -8 points
Points since week 1: 173

Wednesday

DAX sideways after the new ATH: start of the future @ 13565

Things have to settle a bit - tomorrow ECB decision. Not much volatility expected.
So no trade today because of
• weak week
• gap not closed yet - but still support from Kumo
• low volume expected
• low vola expected

Finally


EUR/USD got up to 1.2402

AND the DAX slipped to close the gap during cash hours.

GFIs1

PS: of course my system would not have given points during normal hours - so sitting @ the sidelines is very healthy
