Summary:  DAX testing key support. FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 has taken key supports out and are set for lower levels.
GER40, UK100 & UK250 mid levels in this article

DAX has been testing key support at around 14.906 this morning following a massive sell-off. Now back above 15K further rebound could be seen.
However, if daily RSI closes the day below 40 threshold (at the time of writing is below) it will be showing negative sentiment which indicates lower DAX levels.
A Dax close below 14.906 could fuel a sell-off down to around 0.382 retracement at 14,238 but there is no strong support until around 13,791.

To reverse this bearish scenario a close above 15.707 is needed.
