THE TAKEAWAYThe US Dollar is likely to continue trending higher in the weeks ahead on safe-haven demand as S&P 500 technical positioning hints a top is being carved out.

S&P 500 – Prices continue to hint a double top is taking shape below 1292.90, the October 27 high, with a

bearish Hanging Man candlestick followed by a Long-Legged Doji to reinforce the likelihood that bullish momentum is fading. Initial support stands at 1265.30, with a break below that targeting a rising trend line now at 1240.40.

Near-term support remains at 101.28, with a break below that exposing the 100.00 figure and 97.89. Alternatively, a reversal higher through immediate resistance clears the way for a push to 106.05.
