US and EU stock indices data ingestion currently broken

An update on data ingestion and chart generation Here is a real quick update on what can currently be observed on the main website: Our main data source for US and EU stock indices changed some internals, which is why the automated data ingestion no longer works. Hence, the automatically generated charts stopped updating in June. Unfortunately we noticed very late, and now the charts for the US and EU stock indices are outdated. The charts for indices from India and all crypto-related things are not affected. What are the next steps to fix the US and EU stock indices charts? We are going to look for another data source and adapt all things accordingly. We will let you know as soon as everything is fixed.    

State of Dax - Calendar Week 29

State of Dax - Calendar Week 29

As usual, I'll walk you through the state of Dax, according to market breadth data.
We're in calendar week 29 and have an interesting trading week behind us!
Let's look at the latest information.

% of Dax members above SMA50, SMA100 and SMA200

Last week's "State of the Dax" blog post mentioned that for the SMA50 a  threshold was reached. More than 50% of the Dax members traded below their SMA50, which means they switched to a downside trend. We're still below that 50%.
I also stated that for the Dax members trading above their SMA 200, a critical threshold was reached (but not breached yet). I claimed that it would not be a good sign if this number decreased any further, but then the huge dip came on the next trading day. Let's see what this graph looks like today:

The 80% threshold was breached, the graph went down to 63,3%. After the 19th July, the percentage of Dax members trading above their SMA200 was on the rise again. We're now back at 86,7% which fits it very well in the range we had before from 11th May until last week. Note that 86,7% seems to be a resistance level.

By the way: The last time the percentage of Dax members above their SMA200 reached 63,3% was back in March. Afterwards, it took the Dax members one month to climb to the peak of 96,7%.


This week's dip in the Dax was a small opportunity for all those who like to do short-time anti-cyclic trading. 
Signals coming from breadth indicators don't point downwards, but not upwards either. During the next 1-2 trading days, we might see a small price decline again because there was such a strong reaction on this week's dip.
