One bullish candlestick pattern matches today's price action, the White Candle.
Crossing above the upper Bollinger Band for the first time since Wednesday, prices have shown unusually strong upward momentum in the short-term. This could either indicate a potential buying climax after which prices might head back down towards the mean of the Bollinger Bands at 11355.00 or signal the beginning of a strong momentum breakout leading to even higher prices. The last time prices broke out above the upper Bollinger Band on Tuesday, DAX gained 3.88% on the following trading day.
While still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
