US Dollar Edges Lower as the S&P 500 Finds Interim Support

US Dollar Edges Lower as the S&P 500 Finds Interim Support

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar retreated from resistance as the S&P 500 staged a mild recovery but overall positioning hints these moves were corrective in the context of larger trends.

S&P 500 – Prices bounced from support above 1305.90, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, to retest support-turned-resistance at a falling trendset from early May (now at 1323.00). A break higher exposes the 1334.40-1341.90 area. Alternatively, a reversal back through support targets the 1300 figure followed by the 50% Fib at 1288.00.
