S&P 500 Chart Setup Favors Renewed Selling, US Dollar May Pull Back

S&P 500 Chart Setup Favors Renewed Selling, US Dollar May Pull Back

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: Recent S&P 500 gains appear corrective, with renewed selling expected ahead. The US Dollar may pull back as prices test major resistance.

S&P 500 – Prices are retesting resistance at 1376.10, the confluence of the 2011 yearly high and the underside of a rising channel set from late December. The move higher over the preceding three sessions appears corrective for now, with the overall tone of positioning favoring a bearish bias. Initial support lines up at 1358.60, with a break lower exposing 1337.10. Alternatively, a push through resistance targets the 1400 figure.

CRUDE OIL Prices bounced from the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 104.38 to retest support-turned-resistance at a rising trend line set from the February 2 low. The move appears corrective for now, with overall positioning still calling for a broadly bearish bias. Trend line resistance is now at 108.83, with a break higher targeting the February 24 high at 109.93. Near-term support stands at 106.50, the 23.6% Fib, with a daily close below that exposing 104.38 anew.
