We are in a downward trend

In the daily chart, a clear downward trend can be seen in the mid-term range. From a chart-related point of view, there is absolutely nothing long here at the moment. The price increases of the last few weeks resulted in a correction down to the 200 SMA line, and are making short entries more and more interesting. The potential is increasing with the extension of this correction, which, from the size relation, also matches the last corrections in June and April.

Due to the increased volume of the current correction, however, we should wait for a clear signal. A reversal candle in the day is one scenario, but for trend sizes such as these, it would therefore have to be significantly bigger than this. This is why a clear trend formation in the subordinate hourly chart would be characterized by more security, and in our opinion, would also be the preferred scenario.

As long as the 148 euro marker holds, the trend remains downwards. Nonetheless: if the prices go above this with pressure, a stop trigger may occur – bears are kicked out of the market, stops are triggered and a rapid price increase in the direction of 157 euros may occur.

Wait for a clear trend reversal in the hourly chart

When we take a look at the trend in the hourly chart, we see that in the subordinate timeframe, we are still pointing downwards. This trend has to turn soon – we should definitely wait for a clear trend reversal in any case. An entry would take place either as soon as the first downward trend formation near the SMA 200 line at 141 euros, or not until the next establishing breakthrough, thus providing more security. There is plenty of space downwards to wait for more signals. The stop placement occurs at the last high of the hourly trend respectively – classic according to trend trading.

First partial sales for profit-taking should occur at 129 euros at the latest – better yet, a little above at 130-131 euros. In this zone, the prices are located at an important decision zone; where other market participants are now entering, we want to be taking our first profits already.

Before making an entry, one should take the news into consideration. In addition, one should also observe the overall market as well as the actions of the central banks.

One should definitely wait for the effects of the FED central bank meeting this week. Volkswagen has announced the release of its earnings for the 27th October.
