THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar has scope for a corrective pullback after prices hit a new 2012 high yesterday, which may produce a short-term recovery in the S&P 500.

S&P 500 – Prices took out support at 1331.50, the 123.6% Fibonacci expansion, to challenge the 138.2% level at 1322.00. A break below this boundary exposes the 150% Fib at 1313.90. The 1331.50 level has been recast as near-term resistance, with a push back above that exposing 1347.60.
