S&P 500 Tests Critical Support as US Dollar Accelerates Upward

S&P 500 Tests Critical Support as US Dollar Accelerates Upward

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The S&P 500 is inching lower to challenge the boundaries of the near-term up trend while the US Dollar has breached initial resistance and aims higher still.

S&P 500 – Prices put in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern below resistance at 1376.10, the May 2011 top, hinting a move lower is ahead. Negative RSI divergence reinforces the case for a downside scenario. Initial support lines up at 1358.60 and is reinforced by a rising channel bottom now at 1354.00. A break below that exposes the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1331.40.
