US Dollar Pullback Keeps Broader Bullish Setup Intact for Now

US Dollar Pullback Keeps Broader Bullish Setup Intact for Now

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar pulled back to key support as prices struggle to build upward momentum but overall positioning continues to warn of a bullish reversal.

S&P 500 – Prices took out 61.8% Fibonacci expansion resistance at 1415.70 to test the 76.4% level at 1421.40. The 61.8% level has been recast as support and is now reinforced by the lower boundary of a rising channel set the March 29 bottom. A break below this boundary sees initial support at 1411.10 and 1406.50, the 50% and 38.2% Fibs respectively. Alternatively, a break higher exposes the March 27 high at 1424.90.

CRUDE OIL As we suspected yesterday, crude moved higher after putting in an Inverted Hammer candlestick above support at 102.97, the 50% Fibonacci retracement. Prices closed above initial resistance at 104.75, the 38.2% Fib, with bulls now aiming to challenge the 23.6% level at 106.96. This barrier is reinforced by a falling channel top set from late February. The 104.75 level has been recast as near-term support.

GOLD Prices moved higher as expected after taking out resistance at 1690.04, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level. The bulls continue to target the 38.2% Fib at 1690.04, with a break above that exposing 1709.23. Near-term support remains in the 1658.51-1666.29 area.

US DOLLAR Prices remain wedged between resistance-turned-support at a falling trend line set from the mid-December swing high and a shorter-term downward sloping barrier capping the upside since mid-March. A break below 38.2% Fibonacci retracement support at 9935 exposes the 50% level at 9885. The 9935 level has been recast as resistance. On balance, a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern still points to al looming upward reversal and needs a daily close below the March 27 low at 9896 to be neutralized.
