- European stock markets trade lower
- DE30 continues to move lower
- Infineon (IFX.DE) stock plunges despite upbeat quarterly results
European stock market indices launched today’s cash session lower, extending Friday’s downward move. Blue chips indices from Germany, France and the UK are trading around 1% lower dragged by global growth woes amid ongoing lockdowns and stringent health restrictions in China. Meanwhile Putin’s highly anticipated speech Victory Day focused on the reaffirmation of Russia’s causes, which calmed some expectations of a verbal escalation of the conflict.
DE30 launched today’s session below Friday’s closing price. Buyers attempted to push the index higher, however the upward move turned out to be short-lived and price returned to session lows below major resistance at 13600. As long as price sits below this level, another downward impulse towards major support at 13300 pts may be launched. This level coincides with lower limit of the wedge formation and 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the upward wave launched in November 2020.Source: xStation5
