US Dollar Breaks Higher But Relative Strength Studies Warn of Pullback

US Dollar Breaks Higher But Relative Strength Studies Warn of Pullback

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar resumed its breakneck advance, setting a new yearly high, but relative strength studies warn that a pullback may be brewing in the days ahead.

S&P 500 – A sharp bearish reversal has produced a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern and brought prices to support at 1306.50, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. A break below this boundary exposes the 1288.00-1292.90 area marked by the October 27 high and the 38.2% expansion. Near-term resistance lines up 1335.90, the May 29 session high.

CRUDE OIL Prices broke through support in the 90.14-88.54 region marked by the early September swing top and the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. Sellers now aim to challenge the 76.4% level at 83.34. The 90.14-88.54 area has been recast as near-term resistance.

GOLD Prices continue to consolidate above support in the 1522.50-1532.45 area. Near-term trend line support-turned-resistance lines up at 1586.09. A break above this boundary exposes the 1600/oz figure followed by the top of a channel set from late February, now at 1614.45.
