THE TAKEAWAYToday’s rebound in the S&P 500 has failed to overturned yesterday’s bearish candlestick signal, hinting the safe-haven US Dollar will resume its advance after a pullback.

S&P 500 – Prices rebounded from support at 1197.29, the 23.6% Fibonacci extension level, but the rally fell short of overturning the downside-favoring Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern identified yesterday (which would require a daily close above the formation’s high at 1235.40. Critical resistance remains at 1230.90, the top of the range in place early August.

CRUDE OIL Prices negated the bearish Harami candlestick pattern produced yesterday with a break above downward-sloping trend line resistance set from April’s swing high, exposing support-turned-resistance at $90.50. The trend line, now at $86.38, has been recast as near-term support.

GOLD Prices produced a Piercing Line bullish candlestick pattern above support at the bottom of a modestly rising channel carved out since late September. Near-term resistance stands at $1660.73, the 50% Fibonacci retracement level, with a break above that exposing the 61.8% level at $1668.77. Alternatively, a break below the 38.2% Fib at $1652.68 exposes the 23.6% boundary at $1642.73.

US DOLLAR Prices pulled back from resistance at 9800, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, to retest the broken falling trend established from the October 4 swing high as support. The pullback can be seen as corrective absent a daily close below 9709.
