US Dollar Chart Setup Hints Two-Week Pullback May Be Exhausted

US Dollar Chart Setup Hints Two-Week Pullback May Be Exhausted

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: US Dollar technical positioning hints the pullback witnessed over the past two weeks may have run its course with a bullish reversal starting to take shape.

S&P 500 – Prices put in a bearish Harami candlestick pattern below resistance at the top of a Rising Wedge chart formation being carved out since November, with negative RSI divergence reinforcing the case for a downside scenario. Initial support lines up at 1408.80, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion level. Importantly, we’ve seen plenty of false starts to the downside recently so caution is warranted pending firm confirmation on a break of the Wedge formation’s bottom on a daily closing basis. Near-term esistance is now at 1424.20.

CRUDE OIL Prices appear to be carving out a descending Triangle chart pattern. The setup generally argues in favor of a turn lower but confirmation is needed on a clear break of support at 104.75, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level. Near-term falling trend line resistance lines up at 107.95.

GOLD Prices pulled back from resistance at 1691.06, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with sellers facing initial support at 1666.37. A break below this barrier exposes 1641.62. Alternatively, a reversal higher through near-term resistance targets the 38.2% expansion at 1730.16.

US DOLLAR Prices put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick above support at 9885, the confluence of the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and two trend lines, a falling one set from mid-December that previously acted as resistance and a more recent rising one established from the February 8 low. The setup hints the pullback playing out over the past two weeks may have run its course. Initial resistance lines up at 9997, the 23.6% Fib.
