DAX30 closes the week above 13,000 points – further bullishness to come?

 Economic Events October 12, 2020Source: Economic Events October 12, 2020 - Admiral Markets' Forex Calendar

The German DAX30 saw a surprisingly strong weekly close above 13,000 points.

This was a surprise as it followed US President Donald Trump told his administration's negotiators around US Treasury Mnuchin to end their current coronavirus stimulus talks with Democrats until after the US presidential election on the 3rd of November. This didn't bode well for the equities outlook.

But, as it seems, Trump got spooked after seeing an instant drop in the stock market and intense backlash from his tweet and pushed US Treasury Mnuchin for a more comprehensive relief bill before the election. Negotiations have reopened and there seems to be a good chance for a deal.

Equities and, thus, the DAX30 took this as a positive sign and the German index now seems capable of clearing 13,100 points sooner rather than later. Most likely, into the start of the week, since the Economic calendar is very thin.

Even a short-push below 13,000 points wouldn't really darken the technical outlook on H1 with a potential long-trigger being found around 12,950 points.

The sequence of higher highs and lows stays intact and the mode bullish as long as the DAX30 trades above 12,770/800 points:
