Later this week, investors will keep an eye on the latest readings of the German consumer price index, consumer climate and unemployment rate.
The previous week was quite disappointing for bulls, who tried hard to break above the 12,900 mark but couldn’t hold it and rebounded to the downside at the 12,700 area. From a technical perspective, the index remains on a positive bias, although it needs concrete support to rally.
Central bank speakers will be in focus also in the upcoming days as the ECB kicks off a forum on monetary policy. The DAX is likely to trade inside a range between 12,550 and 12,950.
