THE TAKEAWAYThe S&P 500 recoiled lower from a trend-defining resistance level, reinforcing emerging hints of a forthcoming upswing in the safe-haven US Dollar.

S&P 500 – Prices put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern below support-turned-resistance at 1257.30, the former neckline of a major Head and Shoulders top chart formation carved out between January and August. Near-term support lines up at 1228.10, the 50% Fibonacci retracement level, with a break below that exposing the 38.2% barrier at 1193.17.

CRUDE OIL Prices put in a Shooting Star candlestick below resistance at 94.87, the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the drop from May’s swing high, pointing to a loss of bullish momentum and hinting a move lower is ahead. Initial support lines up at 90.17, the 38.2% Fib, with a break below that targeting the 23.6% and 38.2% extension levels at 85.33 and 79.62.
