As we already mentioned in our weekly market outlook on Monday, “after the bulls reconquered the region around 10,660/680 points, further gains up to and also slightly above 11,000 points become a serious possibility.” And indeed, after the DAX30 CFD went for a first correction and a re-test of the breakout level around 10,680/700 on Monday, on Tuesday the sequence of higher highs and lows was continued, and bulls are now in charge on an hourly time frame, as long as the DAX30 CFD trades above 10,660/680 points with a test of 11,000 in the second week of trading becoming a serious option.

Nevertheless, short-term bulls should still be careful with overly aggressive long-engagements: on the dominating daily-time frame, the picture remains bearish below 11,000 points. And in addition, one can spot the first signs of a diminishing upside momentum with a bullish divergence forming in the RSI (14) on the hourly time frame, with both signs that the short-term bullish momentum is probably losing some of its momentum.
