Macro Data Outcome Could Force DAX on Bear’s Path

Global markets are on edge today as dire U.S. economic data slammed Wall Street overnight and pushed investors to bet the Federal Reserve could reverse its policy tightening before the end of this year. Meanwhile fears of Sino-U.S trade war possibly continuing to escalate post the 90-day deadline and ongoing events that hint at possibility of such a situation has increased investor worries as Sino-U.S trade war will continue to drag down global economy with it. This was one of the major factors that drove a surge of volatility last year and continues to influence risk-off price action in equity market even after holiday season. Sino-U.S. trade war woes comes into focus despite positive developments as Apple Inc., cut its revenue forecast for the first time in nearly 12 years, blaming weaker iPhone sales in China.

US market also had other factors which inspired bearish action such as disappointing survey data from ISM which showed U.S. factory activity slowed more than expected in December which is clear sign that US economy is slowing down. US Treasury Yield is also continuing to decline with 10-yr yield hitting lowest in a year all of which added to bearish market sentiment. German market which is highly susceptible to changes in US Wall Street is highly likely to be affected over such developments. Meanwhile positive action in major Asian market is expected to provide bullish cues to European market. DAX futures trading in international market is up by 0.72% ahead of Frankfurt market opening which suggests DAX could open bullish and trade positive but is highly susceptible to downside move on  risk off market sentiment as political and economic issues continue to persist while Eurozone inflation data are also set to release shortly and have bearish forecast.
