DAX outlook: Stocks not out of the woods yet

At the time of writing, the stock markets were starting to come off their best levels. With this being the month- and quarter-end, there will be lots of repositioning today, which may mean lower stock prices later, given that we have been in a risk off market environment for much of September. In any event, volatility is here to stay.

USD/CHF aims for 12th bullish day, DAX on the ropes: European open

The DAX finds itself at a 6-month low with Wall Street indices, with DAX futures also pointing to a weak open. Yields need to pull back for it to stand any chance of recovering, and if they do it may even take some steam out of the USD/CHF rally which is trying to tally up its 12th consecutive bullish day.

EUR/USD, FTSE 100 analysis: European open – 26/09/2023

EUR/USD touched a fresh 6-month low and closed beneath the 1.06 handle. Whilst it could be argued it is oversold, we're yet to see any clear evidence of a market bottom. The FTSE 100 also looks set to move lower after repeatedly failing to close above the July high before momentum turned lower yesterday.

DAX analysis: Stocks resume lower as macro concerns linger

European stocks and US index futures resumed lower in the first half of Monday’s session after Friday’s short-covering bounce. Though the markets managed to stage a mild bounce off their earlier lows, the lack of any important data or central bank speech today means there won’t be any fundamental triggers to cheer investors up. Consequently, we are expecting to see further bearish price action once US investors enter the fray later on.

DAX outlook: German index in focus ahead of big events

At the time of writing in mid-morning European trade, the German DAX was off its earlier lows, but still lower on the session in what has so far been a mixed day for European markets. But with the euro and pound weakening again, it is obvious investors continue to remain concerned over the growing threat of stagflation in Europe.

Gold is trapped between key levels: European open – 11/09/2023

Gold has managed to find support at its 20-day average, yet the 50 and 100-day EMAs are capping its upside potential ahead of Wednesday's US inflation report, which means we'd prefer to seek near-term opportunities on an intraday timeframe.

DAX outlook: European markets face risk of further falls

The slight recovery in European indices can be attributed to an oversold technical bounce, meaning we could see the selling pressure resume once again. In fact, there is a risk that things could get worse before stock prices become attractive again in these tough economic times.

EUR/USD, DAX, gold analysis: European open – 30/08/2023

With hopes that the Fed have reached their terminal rate reignited, we now need to see incoming US data continue to soften to justify the larger moves south for the US dollar and yields on Tuesday. And if data such as GDP and NFP disappoint, it could be beneficial for markets such as EUR/USD, gold and the DAX - all of which we look at today.

GBP/USD, DAX analysis: European open – 21st August 2023

Index futures markets have ticked higher to suggest the bleeding from last week's selloff has receded (if not stopped). And that is despite the PBOC disappointing by not cutting a key interest rate as expected. Today we look at GBP/USD which hints at a potential swing low, and the DAX which has managed to hold above a key support zone.

DAX analysis: European stocks slide as risk off gathers pace

Risk off is the key theme in the markets right now and we are seeing stock averages continue to struggle. Despite yesterday’s tech-fuelled rally, US futures have been dragged lower by weaker European and Asian markets. The FTSE 100 fell 1.4%, while the German DAX was off by around 1% at the time of writing by mid-morning EU trade.
