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 Unfortunately we noticed very late, and now the charts for the US and EU stock indices are outdated.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.    

Dow Jones and DAX quick analysis

Dow Jones and DAX quick analysis

The first trading day after the elections in Germany is over. Reason enough to take a quick look at the DAX.

Its bigger brother, the Dow Jones, is always an interesting index so I don't need a particular reason for a quick analysis.

DAX situation

Technical chart for DAX created at

The DAX started very good into this trading day with gains around ~ +1,21%. Experts say that many investors liked that the outcome of the elections in Germany make an unwanted constellation for a government coalition impossible. Instead, stability can be expected from the next German government. Other investors seemed to be scared of long negotiations between the parties that could form the next coalition. During the day, those gains shrunk to ~ +0,27%, but a gain is a gain.

On the chart it means that the DAX continues to trade below the SMA 20, but at least it trades above the important support line at 15 500. The RSI is still below 50.

Technically, the situation brightened up a little bit, but the consolidation is still ongoing.

Market breadth looks better than the technical chart.

The McClellan Oscillator again is above the zero line, although declining.

The McClellan Summation index had a bottom around -20 and advanced a couple of days in a row. This could mean that we've seen the bottom of the consolidation and now would be a good time to time long-term investments.

When looking for a short-term scoped trade, I would wait until technical indicators (SMA 20, RSI) confirm the "not-so-bad" outlook.

Dow Jones situation

The technical chart of the Dow Jones brightened up a bit. The index trades above its SMA 20 again and even climbed back above the RSI level 50. In addition, the support at 34 850 was reconquered. 

For bulls, it will be important to overcome the level at ~ 35 150 and the small downtrend channel (purple trendlines). It will be also important for the next trading day to confirm that the Dow Jones remains above the SMA 20 and the RSI 50.

Market breadth data for Dow Jones provided by

The McClellan Oscillator has been above the zero line for three consequent days - good. The McClellan Summation Index has been advancing for several days as well. When looking at market breadth, the picture brightened up and one could speculate that we've seen the worst when looking at the last 10-15 trading days.
