DAX breaks support

Dow Jones Germany Index broke support at 210/205 Monday, warning of another sharp fall as the ECB ramps up bond purchases and German participation in the bailout program is challenged in their High Court. Plunging 13-week Twiggs Money Flow indicates strong selling pressure. Target for the fall is the 2009 low of 150*.
