Dax saves itself shortly before the end in the plus – Bitcoin falls towards 50,000 dollars

Düsseldorf The Dax closed 0.1 percent stronger at 14,612 meters on Thursday. After several days of rest, the Dax initially buckled significantly on Thursday lunchtime, but then stabilized again and finally saved itself to positive territory shortly before the stock market closed. This repeated the course of the previous trading days, on which the Dax equalized or contained its losses in the afternoon.

In the meantime, the Frankfurt stock exchange barometer had lost more than 150 points within an hour and was 1.3 percent in the red at 14,423 points. That was the lowest level in more than a week.

In addition to the ongoing pandemic concerns, the latest statements by US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell also proved to be a burden. According to him, after an almost complete recovery of the economy, the monetary policy support provided during the crisis should be scaled back very carefully and with great transparency for the markets.

A setback like this Thursday is not unusual after the Dax had risen sharply in the past two weeks. Within nine trading days, the index set six records and rose by more than six percent to the current record high of 14,804 points.

As a result of the setback, the Dax broke out of the last narrow trading range to the downside. On Monday the difference between the day’s high and low was 138 points, on Tuesday it was 191 points and on Wednesday it was only 96 points. On a weekly basis, there have so far been less than 300 points between the high (14,707 points) and the low (14,423).

A possible explanation for the trading trend with sideways movement, buckling and subsequent recovery: Many investors sold at a high level on Friday, but the prices had not yet fallen far enough for a new entry. So you’ve been waiting for a more powerful pullback.

This assumption is supported by the sentiment survey conducted by the Frankfurt Stock Exchange among private and professional investors. Accordingly, many professionals wandered into the camp of neutral investors in the past week and took profits. Now a large number of these investors have switched to bear camp, so they are betting on falling prices.

New entry at a lower level

The number of optimists has also decreased among private investors. According to the results of the survey, half of them were content with profit-taking, while the others probably went to bear camp in the rising market.

According to behavioral economist Joachim Goldberg, in the event of a setback, a large part of these hedges or short positions should be covered again at a level of 14,200 to 14,250 points. “In this area, the Dax remains well supported, especially since the basic attitude of domestic investors is still bullish,” says Goldberg.

That coincides with the results of the Handelsblatt survey Dax Sentiment from Monday. “Since investors have taken strong hedges, I would assume that any setbacks will only be brief and moderate,” said sentiment expert Stephan Heibel, who evaluates the survey for the Handelsblatt.

In the USA, there is increasing speculation that the one-off payments to households from the current economic stimulus package are more likely to be consumed in the real economy than invested in the financial markets. The high rate of vaccination in the USA means that life there is noticeably normalizing.

The number of call options traded in the US has recently dropped significantly from its record levels at the beginning of the year, reports the business information service Bloomberg. A general downward trend in Bitcoin will be exacerbated by the fixation on value investments away from technology, Vijay Ayyar, head of Asia-Pacific at Crypto Exchange Luno, told Bloomberg.

Bitcoin analyst Timo Emden is also observing growing caution among crypto investors. Investors would currently shift at least part of their Bitcoin investments into fiat money such as dollars or euros. “A slide below the psychological mark of $ 50,000 could provoke further losses to $ 48,000 and $ 44,000,” said Emden.
