Major Negativ Event: Gemany's Carmakers Dragging Down The DAX

TVC:DEU30   DAX Index
Quote:

"VW, Daimler Stocks Drop on Spiegel Report of Antitrust Collusion

Daimler and Volkswagen informed antitrust regulators about decades of talks among German automakers on auto technology that may have breached cartel rules, Spiegel magazine reported Friday, citing a document submitted by Volkswagen in July 2016 and referencing another from Daimler. Germany’s Federal Cartel Office wasn’t immediately available to comment. Volkswagen, Daimler and BMW declined to comment.

Volkswagen fell as much as 4.8 percent, the steepest intraday drop since Sept. 27, while shares of Daimler, the maker of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, declined as much as 2.9 percent and BMW slid 3.3 percent."

Remark: Germany's carmakers are high weighted in the DAX as a market cap weighted index. Today's drop in VW, Daimler and BWM broke the up trend valid since 2016.

Comment: US-Stockmarkets indicating three ways that the uptrend, startet in Februar 2016, short term might end in the next days or weeks and a consolidation pattern might occur after this:

Comment: The chart above is showing technical damage, if ever the anticipated "rising wedge" should be confirmed. Until this pattern is not confirmed any bias should be not more negativ than "neutral".

Comment: Second Issue: Sentiment

The trading idea below (click on this chart to open and read comments) is telling about sentiment. In March 2017 U.S. stockmarkets dropped on very negativ sentiment. Right now the CNN greed & fear Index is showing "extreme greed" - even the number of "75" showing that is still room to the upside left.

Jul 23
Comment: Third issue or indicator: Volatility drop in all global volatility indices indication the final leg to the up side for all major stockmarkets (medium term). This doesn't mean necessarily that the bull market completely is going to be reversed. The uptrend since February 2016 could be replace by a short or medium term countertrend (down) or consolidation pattern (for a while).

Jul 24
Comment: Just BMW, VW and Daimler cutting today 40 points out of the DAX. Otherwise the Index would rise or could had rise back above the broken trendline.

Comment: FUNDAMENTAL VIEW: HISTORIC VIX NUMBERS UNDER
"10" EXTREMELY RARE
.
QUOTE:
.
Here’s what happened the last time the VIX traded this low
.
The CBOE Volatility Index dropped to its lowest level since December 1993 on Tuesday, and history shows it could mark a tremendous buying opportunity for stocks.

According to Brian Stutland of Equity Armor Investments, the so-called fear index has only closed below the 10 level on 24 trading days in history, with 15 of those days occurring in the last three months. Note, a close below 10 on Tuesday would mark the 25th time in history and 16th occurrence in the last three months.

But while Wall Street weighs whether the low volatility reading could signal a top for the markets, Stutland pointed out that it could actually foreshadow the next leg up in the rally.

"When we see this low, we look at the stock market and it has done fairly well," he explained Tuesday on CNBC's "Futures Now." "When we see the VIX trades below 10, usually in the last couple of times ."

He also noted that the last time the VIX saw a prolonged period below 10, in November 2006, the S&P 500 rallied 10 percent six months later, and 5 percent one year later.

At 34 percent, his current approval rating is worse than former President Barack Obama's ever was

QUOTE: "Trump has defied the trends before. But if history is a guide, his numbers don't bode well. Low approval ratings hamper a president's ability to push an agenda through Congress and make it more likely the president's party will lose seats in Congress in the midterm elections."

Comment: Quote: "The report also pointed out the turn away from U.S. stocks coincided with the late June surge in the euro against the U.S. dollar to its strongest in nearly a year, after comments from European Central Bank President Mario Draghi suggested higher inflation and tighter monetary policy soon in the euro zone.

The euro subsequently climbed to its highest in more than two years in early August, and traded slightly below those levels near $1.186 Friday. Draghi is scheduled to speak later Friday afternoon at an annual meeting of central bankers in Jackson Hole, Wyoming."

The Chart is showing now that yesterdays intraday reversal, leaving an impressive daily candle wich like a reversal pattern.
From another perspective yesterdays candle is a break of this major downtrendline followed by an impressive reversal wich now could be seen as a succesfull passed re-test.

Yesterday the DAX showed unexpected high momentum to the upside. After today's daily candle markets could leave more guidance that short term momentum is stronger to the upside still.

hello SwissView, in terms of your latest chart what targets do you have for this week? will we go down again to a possible 11700 area after touching around 12050
Reply
@jjMatos, very sorry but i guess i am unable to make short term predictions like this. For the next days i guess it might be helpfull to watch the momentum to the upside first and than to discuss any re test.

@SwissView, thank you. i appreciate it. will do
Reply
@jjMatos, EURUSD showing us right now a full U-Turn. The DAX is right now sensitive to EURUSD and could answer this reversal pattern with a huge short term spike. As long as the down trend is a countertrend only than we need to expect ongoing short term reversals even to the upside and the downside. Same time the DAX is moving lower - but not like with the total speed of a bearmarket.

The last episode from Volkswagen - Dax fell 2000 points in a span of 2 weeks.
Looks like this time round. The impact should be similar.
Reply
@tanSL, i would not have to high expectations on any downmove right now. Volkswagen total market cap on Friday was just 28 Billion Euro. VW, BMW and Daimler total market cap is 150 billion Euro (only). The point is not to predict any "crash" at this moment. All major stockmarkets showing an impressive and unexpected uptrend since February 2016. Same time U.S. stockmarkets showing the longest periode of time not having a 5% downmove or consolidation pattern since 1995. My point is: The DAX unlikely to continue medium term this up move without support of all three carmakers, especially VW. VW selling cars in 2017 still on a record level and also earnings are strong. German car makers should be able to rise further if ever the "Diesel Gate" issue is solve out - finally.
