S&P 500 Confirms Near-Term Top But Dollar Takes Step Backward

S&P 500 Confirms Near-Term Top But Dollar Takes Step Backward

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar has taken a step backward while the S&P 500 appears to have confirmed a near-term top, paving the way for weakness in the days ahead.

S&P 500 – Prices took out support at 1392.10, the neckline of a Head and Shoulders (H&S) top chart formation. Sellers face initial support at 1377.10, with 1392.10 recast as near-term resistance. The H&S setup implies a measured downside target at 1359.30.
