USD, S&P 500 & More – Charts For Next Week
- US Dollar Index (DXY) coming off trend support
- S&P 500 turn down was unusually strong for a correction
The US Dollar Index (DXY) shot higher yesterday as risk-off gripped risky assets amidst renewed uncertainty with the coronavirus and the economic outlook. The bounce is coming off a trend-line running higher since 2018, and if the momentum is any indication the bounce could quickly morph into a rally. Look for the 95.72 low to hold for more upside towards the 200-day MA and higher to develop. A break below the low and trend-line will put even more pressure on the Dollar, with DXY 94.65 eyed as the next level of support.

The S&P 500 got crushed yesterday. It was the type of turn after a rally that suggests that there is more from where that came from. The SPX closed the day below the 200-day and will begin today trading just above it; watch how this tug-of-war plays out. The thinking is we will see more weakness in the week ahead, with potential for a move to the May 14 low in the cards in the not-too-distant future. If the market can manage to stabilize and turn higher quickly, it is possible it was a one-off event, but that doesn’t look very likely at this time.
