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 Unfortunately we noticed very late, and now the charts for the US and EU stock indices are outdated.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 28 Today's post is about the state of Germany's leading stock index, DAX (sometimes also called DAX30 or GER30). We're trying to determine the health of DAX 30 by looking at the DAX Advance Decline Line, Dax McClellan Oscillator, Dax McClellan Summation Index and the Dax members above their SMA50, SMA100 and SMA200.   Dax Advance Decline Line and Advanced vs. Declined The image above shows the historical data of Dax along with the Dax Advance Decline Line and the Advanced vs. Declined graph.

At the moment, this looks like the price's movement sticks within the range we've seen during the last 6-7 weeks and the advance decline data follows those upside-downs. However, the current situation should be

Adding Advance Decline Line to market observations

    Today I added the calculation and visualization of the ADVANCE DECLINE line for DAX, SDAX, TECDAX, MDAX, EURO STOXX 50, DOW JONES, NASDAQ 100 and NIKKEI 225 to my repository. The advance decline line usually helps to confirm ongoing trends or to spot possible upcoming changes.  On the screenshot above, you can see an example dashboard of DAX with the advance decline line, the advanced vs. declined data, the McClellan Oscillator and the McClellan Summation index. I will work on making more out of my own calculated data. If you have any suggestions or want to share your own experience, feel free to contact me.

Visualizing the pulse of Financial Markets Welcome to my first post on my new financial blog. It is important to know that everything you read here is just a way of expressing my opinion. Please do not consider it as financial analysis, consulting or buy/sell recommendation. About me and my market observations I do not consider myself a trader or investor. My goal is to find a way to put money into the capital market while reducing risks and anticipating big changes in trends. In my personal investment plan for retirement, ETFs play a huge role. I like passive index fonds because they basically mirror stock indices. Stock indices always represent parts of a market or a whole sector. In contrast to single securities, they represent a bride spectrum of exchange listed companies, and as a "group of stocks" they are less vulnerable to unexpected or extreme price movements. This is why some general rules of analyzing or anticipating price movements apply, and I find it rewarding
