DAX 30 (surprisingly) stable despite "Evening Star

The military strike against Syria threatened by US President Trump via Twitter failed to take place yesterday. Nevertheless, international stock markets remained driven by nervousness and uncertainty.

Fundamentally, the US inflation data published yesterday showed a solid upswing. "However, these "interest concerns" are unlikely to trigger any.

The DAX 30 still needs to be consolidated, following the short-term D&R technical price target (12,489), which was almost reached recently. The profit-taking announced at the beginning of the week came to pass.

Irrespective of this, the primary trend remains secured at around 11,800. The psychologically important 12,000 also continued to be sustainably consolidated.

However, short-term investors should leave their take-profit brands unchanged or follow suit.

In market terms, the indicators continue to show an easing of tension. In particular, the trend following indicator MACD cannot be "misled" here. However, the likelihood of short-term profit taking remains due to recent threats of Trumps.

The long-term trend remains intact even today, but there can always be nervous short-term twitches. The leading German index seemed surprisingly stable yesterday when the "trump tweets" are compared.

Even yesterday's "Evening Star" should not change that.
