Dollar Breaks Support as S&P 500 Builds on Bullish Reversal Setup

Dollar Breaks Support as S&P 500 Builds on Bullish Reversal Setup

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar broke below a significant support level, opening the door for further weakness, as the S&P 500 built upon a bullish reversal chart formation.

S&P 500 – Prices are testing initial resistance at 1357.40 after completing a bullish inverse Head and Shoulders (H&S) pattern with a break above neckline resistance in the 1334.40-41.90 area. A break above this level exposes 1392.10. Broadly speaking, the H&S setup implies a measured objective at 1419.90, conveniently at the year-to-date closing high. The 1334.40-41.90 region has been recast as support.

GOLD Prices pulled back to retest the 61.8%Fibonacci retracementat 1616.23, a barrier reinforced by former resistance at a falling trend line set from early March. A break below here exposes the 1600/oz figure. Near-term resistance remains at 1637.35, the 76.4%Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that exposing the May 1 high at 1671.49.
