US Dollar May Pull Back Before Larger Rally Continues

US Dollar May Pull Back Before Larger Rally Continues

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar may pull back to re-test resistance cleared yesterday before the larger advance resumes. The S&P 500 has scope for a parallel recovery.

S&P 500 – Prices put in an Inverted Hammer candlestick above support in the 1339.40-1347.40 area, marked by the 100% Fibonacci expansion and the 38.2% retracement of the rally from the December 19 swing low. The setup points to indecision and hints that a bounce may be ahead. Initial resistance lines up at 1363.50, the 76.4% expansion, with a break higher exposing 1370.60. Alternatively, renewed selling that pierces 1339.40 targets the 50% retracement at 1313.00.

CRUDE OIL Prices continue to test support in the 95.78-96.56 area marked by a horizontal barrier in play since early November 2011 as well as the 100% Fibonacci expansion. Similarly to the S&P 500, an Inverted Hammer candlestick hints at the possibility of a corrective bounce. Near-term resistance lines up at 98.89, the 76.4% expansion. A break below support exposes 92.51.

Alternatively, renewed selling pressure that takes prices through support would expose the 61.8% expansion at 1561.49.
