Dax 40 March is forming a sideways consolidation as volatility decreases, which is normal in both a bull & bear trend. We do not know how long this process will take but there is definitely no sell signal at this stage.
FTSE 100 March holding a 3 day range from 7710 up to 7780.
Remember when support is broken it usually acts as resistance & vice-versa.

Dax March held 18 ticks above support at 15000/14950 to hit my target & minor resistance at 15170/200. If we continue higher look for strong resistance at last week's high of 15300/330. Shorts need stops above 15380. A break higher is a buy signal.
First support again at 15000/14950. A break lower targets 14870/850 then strong support at 14770/720.

First support at 7695/75. Longs need stops below 7865.
Emini S&P March is forming a new sideways range as we ignore the 3990/4010 area. I will have to wait a but longer to draw accurate tradeable trend lines but will do my best to identify support & resistance at this stage.
I would forget running a swing trade & try to scalp the levels I provide.

It is becoming a scalpers market in stock indices - perhaps we will trade sideways in to the spring now.
The news has been about as bad as it could get for weeks - the Fed has been trying to take the market down, but it remains firm.
A mild recession and US rates at around 5.25% are priced in. I think we will have to wait for a change of perception before we can start a new trend for stocks.
Actually I would not be surprised to see stocks trade sideways through the summer, as long as inflation continues to ease very slowly & rates rise very slowly, then pause, all as expected.
There will be no reason for stocks to soar or collapse.
