US Dollar Rose as Risk Aversion Left S&P 500 Bearish Price Signals

Asia Pacific Market Open Talking Points

  • USD gained on less-dovish Fed bets as Middle East tensions soured markets
  • S&P 500 showing multiple technical bearish reversal warning price signals
  • Australian Dollar may fall as Asia Pacific markets begin week in sour mood

Not sure where the US Dollar is heading next? We recently released the third quarter US Dollar fundamental and technical forecast!

Fed Rate Cut Bets Cooling, Middle East Tensions Rising Fueled Risk Aversion

Financial markets were rocked during the final moments of last week as a combination of monetary policy themes and Middle East tensions resulted in the worst 5 days for the S&P 500 since late May. For starters, US front-end government bond yields rallied on Friday as markets unwound aggressive Federal Reserve July rate cut expectations as John Williams clarified previously incorrectly-interpreted dovish comments.

Then, heading into the final hours of the week, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard reportedly seized two oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz. US-Iran political tensions have been increasing since the former nation withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Sentiment-linked crude oil prices rallied on supply disruption concerns, diverging from declines in the S&P 500 on rising worries over a conflict.

Unsurprisingly, both of these developments proved to be supportive for the world’s most liquid currency, the US Dollar. Though it pared some of its gains towards the end of the session. On the flip side of the spectrum, we saw the pro-risk Australian Dollar underperform. In fact, technically AUD/USD’s upside push this past week was tamed by a falling trend line from 2018 which kept the downtrend intact.

Monday’s Asia Pacific Trading Session

Given this news, Asia Pacific markets may begin the week in a sour mood which would compound Aussie selling pressure. A quiet economic docket at the beginning of the new week works to place the focus for foreign exchange markets on risk trends. This may work to benefit the anti-risk Japanese Yen in the event of carry trade unwind.

S&P 500 Technical Analysis

The S&P 500, from a technical standpoint, is showing numerous bearish reversal warning signs. The most prominent is what appears to be a Head and Shoulders pattern in the making, with an Evening Star composing the head of the candlestick formation. This followed the presence of negative RSI divergence, which indicated fading momentum to the upside. A break under 2971 exposes 2947, former 2018 resistance.
