S&P 500 Bearish Signal Neutralized, US Dollar Breaks Support

S&P 500 Bearish Signal Neutralized, US Dollar Breaks Support

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The S&P 500 has neutralized a bearish chart setup below resistance at the 2011 peak while the US Dollar broke through support, hinting deeper losses are ahead.

S&P 500 – Prices neutralized the bearish Three Inside Down candlestick pattern completed on February 22. Resistance at 1376.10, the May 2011 top, remains intact however and negative RSI divergence continues to warn of frail bullish momentum. Initial rising channel support lines up at 1366.30, with a break below that exposing 1358.60. Alternatively, a daily close above 1376.10 exposes the 1400 figure and 1425.20.

GOLD Prices rebounded from 1763.00, the confluence of former resistance at the December 2 high and the 23.6% Fibonacci extension, apparently neutralizing a bearish Three Outside Down candlestick pattern completed yesterday. The bulls now look to challenge the 1800/oz figure, a barrier reinforced by the 38.2% extension level.A daily close above this level targets the 50% extension at 1824.91. Importantly, negative RSI divergence continues to warn that of fading upward momentum.
