S&P 500 Stalls at Familiar Resitance, Dollar Waiting for Follow-Through

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar is waiting for bullish follow-through as prices drift along rising trend support while the S&P 500 remains capped by familiar range resistance.

S&P 500 – Prices are retesting support-turned-resistance in the 1391.20-1392.10 area marked by the 50% Fibonacci retracement and the former neckline of a Head and Shoulders top pattern. A break above this boundary initially exposes the 61.8% level at 1399.10. Initial support lines up at 1383.20, the 38.2% Fib, with breach below that seeing near-term support at 1373.30.
