THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar and the S&P 500 are positioned ahead of trend-defining technical barriers, with prices’ behavior from here to set the tone for the days ahead.

S&P 500 – Prices are once again testing the top of a Rising Wedge chart formation being carved out since November, with negative RSI divergence warning that a move lower may be ahead. Initial support lines up at 1408.80, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion level. Wedge top resistance is now at 1422.50, with a break above that initially exposing the 50% Fib at 1429.50.

CRUDE OIL Prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick above support at 104.75, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, hinting a move higher is ahead. Initial falling trend line resistance lines up at 108.04, with a break upward initially exposing the March 19 swing high at 108.66.
