DE30 gaining above MA(200)  11/8/2019 Technical Analysis IFC Markets chart

On the daily timeframe DE30: D1 is rising above 200-day moving average MA(200) which is also rising.

We believe the bullish momentum will continue as the price breaches above the upper boundary of Donchian channel at 13206.55. This level can be used as an entry point for placing a pending order to buy. The stop loss can be placed below the lower Donchian boundary at 12742.60. After placing the order, the stop loss is to be moved every day to the next fractal low, following Parabolic signals. Thus, we are changing the expected profit/loss ratio to the breakeven point. If the price meets the stop loss level (12792.60) without reaching the order (13206.55), we recommend cancelling the order: the market has undergone internal changes which were not taken into account.
