Amazon, Apple and Co. keep the DAX30 above 12,000 points – how long?

DAX30 stabilises thanks for the US tech sector

Economic events calendar

The German DAX30 took a serious hit last Thursday, when it aggressively broke below 12,800 points by dropping more than 4%. Currently, it seems as if the only reason that is didn't drop even further on Friday, were the strong earnings from tech giants like Amazon, Apple, Google and Facebook.

But the question arises, how long the tech sector can stabilize the whole of the US equity market and thus European stock market as well? This is a particular concern after the very bad economic data last week, from both Germany, which saw a historic economic collapse as the GDP shrank more than 10% (QoQ) in Q2/2020, and France which also reported a record drop in economic output as the GDP shrank 13.8% (QoQ) in Q2/2020.

Technically, we consider the short-term/Intraday mode in the DAX30 to be short if we continue to trade below 12,570 points, a break higher makes a correction as high as 12,770/800 points likely.

If bulls fail to recapture 12,570 points, confirming the bullish divergence on H1 in the RSI(14), the mode stays clearly bearish and a break below the last week lows around 12,200 points makes a stint below 12,000 points a serious option:
