The Dax put the weak start to the week behind it with a recovery rally on Tuesday. Despite the ongoing fighting between Israel and the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas, the leading German index closed 1.95 percent higher at 15,423.52 points. The MDax of medium-sized companies rose by 2.24 percent to 25,795.41 points.

According to stockbrokers, the market was helped by moderate tones from US central bankers, who gave hope for another interest rate break in the United States. Against this background, even the recently rising US bond yields, which tend to point to higher interest rate expectations, have not been able to dampen the buying mood of market participants in this country. According to Michael Hewson from CMC Markets UK, speculation about a possible new economic stimulus package in China also supported the trend. Prices on Wall Street, which had already been friendly the day before, also continued to rise recently.

On the corporate side, the situation on the German stock market was rather clear; price-moving news tended to come from the back rows. Two orders from the aviation industry with a total volume of 100 million euros gave the technology group Kontron’s shares an increase of 6.5 percent in the top SDax positions.
