FTSE 100, DAX analysis: UK lags EU and US stock market recovery

After hitting a new all-time high in February, the FTSE has struggled to find any sustainable support, hurt by concerns over China, UK’s struggling economy and high interest rates across the world. But we have had some positive data out of China, the UK and US this week, which may mean the worst days are behind us.

DAX Analysis: Stocks struggle on MidEast tensions, higher for longer rates

As investors assess the risks of interest rates remaining high for longer, and of course, the escalation of the situation in the Middle East following the bombing of the hospital in Gaza, they are not going to be aggressive in risk-taking you would think.

USD/JPY, DAX analysis: European open – 10/10/2023

Price action on USD/JPY has remained confined to a range since its volatile selloff from 150, but we note a pivotal area worth keeping an eye on today for potential bullish or bearish setups. And whilst the DAX has bounced since its fall to 15k, bulls seem to lack legs which has us on guard for a potential swing high.

DAX outlook: European markets face risk of further falls

The slight recovery in European indices can be attributed to an oversold technical bounce, meaning we could see the selling pressure resume once again. In fact, there is a risk that things could get worse before stock prices become attractive again in these tough economic times.

DAX analysis: European stocks slide as risk off gathers pace

Risk off is the key theme in the markets right now and we are seeing stock averages continue to struggle. Despite yesterday’s tech-fuelled rally, US futures have been dragged lower by weaker European and Asian markets. The FTSE 100 fell 1.4%, while the German DAX was off by around 1% at the time of writing by mid-morning EU trade.

DAX, EUR/USD outlook: Stocks rise as Italy leads relief rally

European stock markets were able to recoup Tuesday’s sharp losses in the first half of Wednesday’s session, which also helped to fuel a modest recovery in the risk-sensitive EUR/USD pair. Sentiment improved for two reasons, but whether the recovery will hold remains to be seen.

DAX Analysis: Stocks fall as risk off tone continues

After Monday’s positive close, the “risk off” trade returned Tuesday as European stocks and US futures slid. The Italian stock markets fell more than 2.5% to lead Europe lower. We saw noticeable falls for the Germany DAX and other leading indices in the region. The risk-off tone kept the dollar underpinned, which weighed down on the commodities like copper, gold and oil.

DAX outlook: Stocks drop on China

Thanks to weakening Chinese manufacturing data, we have seen fresh falls in crude oil and some base metals, hurting energy stocks and miners. Our short-term DAX outlook is therefore bearish given growing worries over the health of the world's second largest economy.
