S&P 500 Looks for Direction Near 2011 High, US Dollar Treading Water

S&P 500 Looks for Direction Near 2011 High, US Dollar Treading Water

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The S&P 500 remains perched near the 2011 yearly high waiting for clear directional cues while the US Dollar is treading water below Fibonacci resistance.

S&P 500 – Unchanged from yesterday: “Prices overcame resistance at 1358.60, the July 2011 high, and now aim for the May 2011 top at 1376.10. Negative RSI divergence hints at ebbing bullish momentum and warns a reversal may be imminent. The 1358.60 level has been recast as near-term support.”

US DOLLAR Prices remain wedged between resistance at 9863, the 50% Fibonacci retracement level, and the 23.6% Fib expansion at 9788. A break higher exposes the 61.8% retracement at 9908 while a push through support targets the 38.2% expansion level at 9732. Signs of negative RSI divergence hint the path of least resistance favors the downside.
