Is the post-election DAX30 bull run only a technical reaction or is there more?

With intensifying signs that Joe Biden has won the US presidential election (we are considering the fact that legal action threats from the Trump Administration may delay the final decision here), equities and, thus, the German DAX30 saw surprising strength into the last weekly close.

In our opinion, the strong bullish push back to above 12,000 points is most likely a combination of:

  • Decreasing fears due to uncertainty around who will finally win the presidential race
  • Fund managers piling back into the market and heavily buying Equities in anticipation of a massive fiscal package from the new US government to stabilize the tumbling US economy

[…] Still, we should not forget the US presidential election Tuesday/Wednesday will probably “re-shuffle the deck” and if, for whatever reason, the DAX30 recaptures 11,650/700 points a deep run back above 12,000 points could be the result, technically resulting in a re-test of the neckline of the Head- shoulder formation on a daily time-frame […]

That move can clearly be seen now when looking at the DAX30 daily chart. What remains to be seen is if we will get to see a bounce here and, respectively, how strong the bounce will be.

Dropping back below 12,270/300 points would leave the German index vulnerable to another stint down to 12,000 points, probably even lower in the days to come. A first target can be found around the US presidential election lows around 11,770/800 points.

If bulls, on the other hand, remain in control and push the DAX30 above 12,600 points, a continued run up to 12,700 points or possibly even above 13,000 points, will become an option:
