Dollar Sets Sights on 2011 Top as S&P 500 Carves Out Topping Pattern

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar is aiming to challenge resistance that has capped prices since early 2011 while the S&P 500 is tracing out a bearish reversal chart formation.

S&P 500 – Prices appear to be carving out a Head and Shoulders top chart formation. Confirmation is required on a daily close below neckline support at 1392.10, which would expose a measured downside objective at 1359.30. Near-term resistance lines up at 1402.90, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion level.
