Moving higher for the 3rd day in a row, DAX ended the week 1.38% higher at 12124.33 after gaining €68.78 (0.57%) today. Today's closing price of 12124.33 marks the highest close since September 4th. Trading up to €33.79 lower after the open, the market managed to reverse during the session as bulls took control ending the day above its opening price.

Ending with a strong close near the high of the day sets a bullish note for the next session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (DAX as at Sep 14, 2018):
Friday's trading range was €58.96 (0.49%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of €109.00. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 12135.64. After having been unable to move above 12129.81 in the previous session, the index ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 12134.54.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
With five out of the other five Major European Indices closing higher today, the ones that stand out on the positive side are TECDAX gaining 1.2% and BEL20 closing 0.47% higher. None of the markets ended the day in the red. Read more
