Frankfurt / Main (dpa) - The Dax started a little weaker on Friday. The German leading index lost 0.51 percent to 12,927.84 points in the first few minutes of trading.

The fight for the mark of 13,000 points continues. On Tuesday, the Dax had jumped this mark again after almost three weeks. However, there is currently a lack of impetus to remain sustainable. The DAX weekly plus is currently 2.3 percent.

For the MDax it went in early trading by 0.95 percent to 27,444.48 points. The EuroStoxx 50, the leading index for the Eurozone, also fell by almost one percent.
