When it comes to discussing hot stock markets in 2015, Germany's DAX index would be part of a conversation. So far the year the DAX index is up around 11%, making it one of the best performing stock index's in the world.
The rally in the DAX index now has it facing the top of a multi-year resistance channel and up against a Fibonacci 161% extension level based upon its 2007 highs and 2009 lows.
Despite the strong rally in the DAX, momentum has been creating a series of lower highs over the past year, similar to what it did in 2007 and 2011.
A DAX breakout here could be a plus for the S&P 500 and a top here could be a negative influence. Investors might want to keep a close eye on this white hot index because what it does from here could send a clue to what the S&P 500 could do going forward.
