Should this occur we will look for a move into 6206, and if momentum to the upside remains strong we cannot rule out a move to 6276. If the ASX cannot close above 6070, we will look for a move back down to 5921 before a pause.

Should this occur, we will look for a strong move into 12714, and if momentum remains strong a push back higher into 13050. If the DAX fails to hold above 12566, we may see a retest back down into the key level of 12266. A close below this level is likely to see a retest of 12166; however if momentum is very strong to the downside we cannot rule out a move to 11871.

If the EURO cannot hold above 1.1738, we could see a fast move down into 1.1678 before a pause. A strong break of this level may result in a move into 1.1612, however any weakness below this level could see a sharp drop into 1.1496.
