VOLATILITY ALERTS:

For a continued move higher we must now see the ASX hold above 6070 followed by a push into 6140. 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 5980 before a pause. A strong break and close below this level however could see the ASX retest 5921, and if downside momentum is very strong we could see a move down to 5746.

If the DAX fails to hold above 12921, we may see a move back down into the key level of 12714. A close below this level is likely to see a retest of 12566; however if momentum is very strong to the downside we cannot rule out a fast and sharp move down to 12266.
