DAX soars 1%

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The German equity index has gained more than 1% today, taking cues from its Asian peers. Moreover, the investors are reacting to the rally through US and Asian markets.

The Dax is trading 1.24% higher at 9107 at the time of writing. All major sectors have posted gains except the Food and Beverage stocks, which are trading down by 5.58%. The utilities are marginally down by 0.25%.

Off-late, the Index has tested the critical support levels around 9000 and the dovish Federal Reserve (Fed) minutes provides a reason for the bounce back. However, gains may be capped after the official German data showed exports fell 5.8% in August, their biggest fall since January 2009.

Dax Technical levels

The Index has an immediate resistance of 9140 (5-day moving average), while the support is located at 9048 (low of 12th Aug, 2014).
