Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAYS&P 500 technical positioning hints a double top is forming below the 1300 figure, promising forthcoming gains for the safe-haven US Dollar.

S&P 500 – Prices put in a bearish Hanging Man candlestick below resistance at 1292.90, the October 27 high, hinting a move lower is ahead and bolstering the case for a forthcoming double top formation. Near-term support stands at 1265.30, while a daily close above 1292.90 initially exposes 1305.40.

CRUDE OIL Prices took out support at 101.28, hinting a double to is in place below 103.35, the November 17 high, and exposing the next downside barrier at 97.89. The narrow breach is somewhat suspect however and may prove to be head-fake so additional confirmation is needed before the bearish argument can be made convincingly. The 101.28 level has been recast as near-term resistance.
