Technical Picture By our Kim Cramer Larsen:
S&P500 bounced off its short term rising trendline just before Christmas starting the Santa Claus rally lifting the Index to new All-Time highs. We could see a couple of days with minor correction possibly down to around 4.700. However, RSI in bullish sentiment without divergence support short term bullish outlook.
DAX bounced strongly off its important support at around 15.100 and followed through with moves above both the 200 and 55 Simple Moving Averages (SMA). There has been some consolidation around resistance at around 15.834.
The bounce from 15.100 has formed a double bottom like pattern and after the closing above 15.834 and the confirmation of and uptrend (higher highs and higher lows) there is potential to new All-time highs in the region of 16.425 and 16.600. RSI needs to close above 60 for further confirmation of the uptrend.
A close below 15.834 could see selling pressure down to 15.500 potentially lower.
