US Dollar Recovery Threatens Trend-Defining Resistance Barrier

US Dollar Recovery Threatens Trend-Defining Resistance Barrier

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar has recovered to test the boundaries of its recent down trend with scope to issue a meaningful breakout to the upside in the days ahead.

S&P 500 – Prices continue to consolidate between 1399.10 and 1409.00, the 61.8% and 76.4% Fibonacci retracement levels. A break higher exposes the late March to early April swing top in the 1419.90-1424.90 area. Alternatively, a push through near-term support targets the 50% Fib at 1391.20.

Resistance is now at 106.03 and bolstered by the 61.8% Fib at 106.27.

US DOLLAR Prices followed a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern identified yesterday above trend line support set from late July 2011 with a push higher. The bulls are now testing resistance in the 9879-9906 area, a barrier reinforced by a falling trend line set from the April 5 swing high, with a daily close above it neutralizing downward pressure and opening the door for a larger advance. Near-term support is now at 9820.
