DAX30 outlook depends on US tech sector – below 13,000 or stint towards 13,450?

The DAX30 presented itself initially as quite strong after the ECB last week on Thursday, which was a little surprising given the fact that the ECB didn't deliver anything new. They kept rates unchanged, while the rhetoric within the ECB statement suggested no clear tendency towards more stimulus to be decided on in the ECB meeting in December.
What became clear was that the German index and its performance currently heavily depends on US Equities, especially the Nasdaq100.
We consider the DAX30 bullish on H1. However, here are some key points to consider:
- As long as we trade above 13,100 points, there will be the potential of seeing another attempt to break above 13,300 points into the start of the week
- This could level the path up to the September highs around 13,450 points
- Any Nasdaq100 weakness and break below 11,000 points would likely bring the DAX under pressure again and make a drop below 13,000 points likely
- Even a drop back below 13,000 points wouldn't necessarily be bearish, at least not initially
In fact, we consider the German DAX30, short-term and on H1, bullish as long as we trade above 13,100 points (region around the Thursday lows) and neutral as long as the DAX30 trades above 12,750 points, the current September lows:
