US Dollar Finds Interim Support as S&P 500 Stalls at Resistance

US Dollar Finds Interim Support as S&P 500 Stalls at Resistance

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar is probing higher after finding interim support while the S&P 500 has stalled at resistance, but a larger reversal remains unconfirmed for now.

S&P 500 – Prices are testing initial resistance at 1363.90 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 reversed lower from resistance at 1637.35, the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement, after putting in a bearish Hanging Man candlestick. Sellers are now testing the 1600/oz figure, a barrier reinforced by the 50% Fib, with a break below that exposing the 38.2% level at 1582.10. The 61.8% retracement at 1616.23 is now near-term resitance.
