FTSE 100 | Key Support Tested

The FTSE 100 has been lacking a directional bias, given that the index has continued to find support at the 200DMA (7377), while the 50DMA (7520) has curbed upside in the short run. Alongside this, trendline resistance above 7600 remains firm and is unlikely to be challenged in the near-term. That said, with the RSI continuing to trend lower, eyes are for a firm break below 200DMA, which in turn could see a move towards the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 7261.

DAX 30 | Reversal Off Channel Top

Having consolidated around the record highs of 13800, the DAX has since reversed from its channel top to break below prior support (now resistance) at 13600. While the impact of the coronavirus has been somewhat lacking, investors remain cautious nonetheless, which in turn leaves the index vulnerable to a notable pullback, particularly on a break below the channel bottom.
