Crypto Market Barometer released on

  Crypto Market Barometer released Today I published my simple but easy-to-read Crypto Market Barometer on our website Click here to get to the new Crypto Market Barometer. This is how the main chart looks like: What's behind the new Crypto Market Barometer We believe that one simple but effective method of gauging the health of a market is to look at how many of the most important individual assets trade above their important SMAs. Since SMAs are a proven way of determining the current trend, a market must be in an uptrend, if more than 50% of its biggest assets trade above their long-term SMAs. If they trade below their long-term SMAs, they must be in a downtrend. For the crypto market, I decided to check the popular BitPanda Crypto Index BCI10. It contains the 10 biggest crypto currencies by market capitalization, and frankly, by only looking at BitCoin, Ethereum, Polkadot and maybe Binance, we already have most of the market covered (again, in

DAX falling and rebounding as expected

DAX falling and rebounding as expected

An arrogant headline, true. Market breadth data simply nailed it and yesterday, I announced on twitter that anti-cyclical traders will have their chance:


But also the technical chart provided an indication how deep the DAX might fall today.

Technical chart and analysis for DAX

The orange trendlines mark the ongoing mini consolidation for the DAX. The limiting line on the top was already present, but it was unclear, at least for me, where its counterpart at the bottom would appear. But after today's trading day, it is easy to clone the trendline on the top and apply it to the chart.

The price bounced away from this lower trendline and today's strong bullish intraday reversal clearly was a signal of strength. 

The price also was not far away from the lower Envelope border. Hitting that region would have given an oversold signal.

The index still trades below its SMA 20 and the fact that the SMA 20 points downwards confirms the short-term trend (declining).

It is now important that the old high at 15501, which marks a region of strong support, will hold.

Technical: Downside, but in a healthy way ;) Nothing to worry about, at least not at the moment.

Market breadth chart for the DAX

The Envelopes on the market breadth chart for the DAX were not touched by the price (at least not on close basis, but surely on intraday basis). Still, you can see that the index reached an interesting low today, slightly comparable the the one on July the 19th.

The Advance Decline Line for DAX followed the price movement.

The data for Advanced vs. Declined hit 0 today, but did not rise above this level (yet).

The McClellan Oscillator for DAX marked a low yesterday, and again, this is comparable to the low in mid July. It will be very interesting to see if the index will develop in the same way as it did after July the 19th.

The McClellan Summation Index for DAX is on decline again, marking a weaker phase for the index on the bigger time frame.

Market breadth: We've definitely seen weak data here for yesterday and today, but there is hope that a bottom is being formed and that the DAX will stop declining. However, the technical chart says that the index is now trading within a declining range, so we might be in the middle of an ongoing consolidation, and from a technical point of view, it would be a surprise if this consolidation will end within the next trading days.
