In addition, Adidas popular sporting goods brand in Japan is also one of the constituents of DAX. Because there are many companies deeply related to Japan, DAX is also characterized as having a high relevance to the Japanese economy.

Factors affecting DAX

DAX has deep ties with the euro area economic indicators. If the announced economic indicator is steady, DAX easily rises. Because Germany is exporting to many European countries, the more active the economy within the euro area, the more it will be the economy of companies that are named for DAX will rise. However, as the euro's appreciation becomes more pronounced, export-related brands will decline, so the rise will be limited. There is no guarantee that the DAX affiliates will be upward in the economy due to the euro's rise, and the economy will be declining due to the euro's rise [economic activation in the euro area = rise in DAX].

German economic indicators directly affect the price of DAX. Even the unemployment rate, which is also an important factor in foreign exchange trading, if the unemployment rate rises, the economy will be sluggish due to the uncertain economic outlook, which will lead to a decline in DAX. Germany keeps the unemployment rate at a low level when looking in Europe. While showing that the economy is doing well, it cannot ignore the possibility that the surge in the unemployment rate associated with the bankruptcy of large corporations will lead to a drastic drop in DAX.

The economic indicator that is a parameter of German business confidence is manufacturing orders. Because the manufacturing industry is the basis of economic activity in Germany, good indicators of manufacturing orders lead to an upward economic factor. From a broader perspective, it is expected that a certain amount of production will be promised if the indices of manufacturing orders are good, which will lead to an increase in employment and a decrease in the unemployment rate.

DAX in the future
