S&P 500 Tracing Bearish Chart Pattern as US Dollar Continues to Stall

S&P 500 Tracing Bearish Chart Pattern as US Dollar Continues to Stall

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The S&P 500 may be starting to trace out a meaningful bearish reversal chart pattern while the US Dollar continues to stall, awaiting direction cues.

S&P 500 – Prices took out resistance at 1363.90 but overall positioning now appears to be tracing out a Rising Wedge chart pattern, a setup indicative of forthcoming bearish reversal. The 1363.90 is recast as support from here, with a turn lower from here exposing the 1334.40-41.90 area anew. Alternatively, a break higher targets 1392.10.

CRUDE OIL Prices continue to push higher after a Piercing Line candlestick pattern sparked a reversal as expected, taking out the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 85.11 to expose the 38.2% level at 89.97. The psychologically significant 90.00 reinforces the upside barrier. The 85.11 has been recast as near-term support.

A break above this boundary initially exposes the June 6 swing high at 1640.80. The 1606.74 level has been recast as support, with a push back below that exposing the 38.2% Fib at 1585.44.
