DAX (German Index GDAXI) – SELL – 18th FEB

DAX (German Index GDAXI) – SELL – 18th FEB (Closed)

Good afternoon Forex Kings

All trades are currently running into a profit, I feel we are positioned well for the week ahead.

We are now looking at the Index market as corporations are now coming out cutting growth forecasts due to the coronavirus.

Apple has already said they will not meet Q1 earnings due to decreased supply/demand in the current market.

HSBC has now cut its 2020 forecasts as well due to corona virus, they are also expecting a large amount of job cuts as the bank is preparing for a major overhaul.

Is this the start of major corporations cutting growth forecasts?

We see the German index (DAX) as an opportunity to sell.

Firstly, the index is trading between a sharp inclining wedge formation. This suggests we could see a sizeable pull back soon.

There has just been a rejection from the top of the wedge which could provide a good entry point.
