Notwithstanding a weak opening Daimler managed to close above the previous day's open and close, forming a bullish Engulfing Candle.
Breaking through the key resistance level at 67.37 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 66.77 in the prior session, the market found buyers again around the same price level today at 66.85.
Though still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
