The Dax has fallen further after the weak start to the week. The leading German index fell by 0.59 percent to 15,314.51 points in early trading on Tuesday, at the same level as in March. The MDax fell by 0.87 percent to 25,902.67 points. The Eurozone leading index EuroStoxx 50 lost 0.87 percent.

A mixture of interest rate and growth concerns is weighing on the German stock market. It is unlikely that the weak phase will end again quickly, wrote market analyst Jochen Stanzl from the trading company CMC Marktes. If there is no wave of buying with a strong upward impulse in the coming days, it could be difficult to bottom out.
