Wednesday's trading session saw the DAX index rise by 0.54%, closing at 14,880, following a marginal gain of 0.02% on Monday. This upward movement was primarily driven by robust corporate earnings that alleviated recession concerns ignited by preliminary private sector PMI numbers from Germany and the Eurozone.

Influencing investor sentiment positively, an unexpectedly strong US services PMI and robust corporate earnings, including Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL)'s results, were reported. Concurrently, US stock markets also experienced gains with the Nasdaq Composite Index up by 0.93%, while the S&P 500 and Dow increased by 0.73% and 0.62% respectively.

Among DAX-listed firms, MTU Aero, Rheinmetall AG, and Adidas (OTC:ADDYY) saw significant gains of 6.10%, 3.18%, and 1.79% respectively, buoyed by Puma's full-year profit forecast. Conversely, banking stocks like Commerzbank (ETR:CBKG) and Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE:DB) reported losses of 1.62% and 1.18%. The automobile sector also weighed on the DAX with Porsche, BMW (ETR:BMWG), Volkswagen (ETR:VOWG_p), Mercedes Benz (ETR:MBGn) Group, and Daimler (OTC:MBGAF) Truck Holding noting losses.

Looking ahead to future sessions, German business sentiment is projected to rise slightly as per the German Ifo Business Climate Index from 85.7 to 85.9 for October. The Ifo Expectations index is also forecasted to increase from 82.9 to 83.3, indicating less pessimism among firms.

In the US market, housing sector data is anticipated to be a focal point with new home sales predicted to fall by 11.0% in September, following an 8.7% decrease in August. This potential downturn could serve as an early warning sign for the US economy. Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:META) is also expected to be in the earnings spotlight.

US Treasury yields and corporate earnings are projected to influence buyer appetite for riskier assets. DAX's technical indicators reveal bearish price signals with the index remaining below the 50-day and 200-day EMAs. A break above the 14,957 resistance level could see a return to 15,000, but a drop below 14,750 might signal oversold territory. The futures markets indicate a mixed session on Wednesday with the DAX up by 23 points.
