THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar is staging an impressive recovery to once again challenge key resistance at the 2011 swing high. S&P 500 positioning warns of a deeper upswing.

S&P 500 – Prices put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick and moved higher to challenge initial resistance at 1322.10, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break above this boundary exposes the 38.2% level at 1341.70. The May 21 low at 1290.30 marks near-term support.

CRUDE OIL Prices put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern above support at 90.49 and took out resistance at 92.51, a former support marked by the December 16 low. The bulls now aim to challenge the February 2 low at 95.41. The 92.51 level has been recast as near-term support.
