After charging higher, the German DAX composite index has spent the past five weeks consolidating gains. This action is reminiscent of a flag consolidation (bullish), however, the market also looks like it is waiting for a catalyst. I say this because 5 weeks of sideways action is starting to feel long in the tooth and if a catalyst doesn’t appear soon, the consolidation could be jeopardized.
Near term, 7200 is the level to watch. Secondary support resides around 7000.
