S&P 500 Chart Setup Warns of Coming Selloff as US Dollar Drifts Higher

S&P 500 Chart Setup Warns of Coming Selloff as US Dollar Drifts Higher

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: S&P 500 technical positioning hints the benchmark stock index may be readying a reversal downward while the US Dollar is drifting cautiously higher.

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. A Doji candle at the would-be Wedge top warns of ebbing bullish momentum, hinting the move lower might be ready to commence. The 1363.90 level has been recast as support, with a turn lower from here initially exposing the 1334.40-41.90 area anew. Alternatively, a break upward targets 1392.10.

CRUDE OIL Prices pushed higher as expected after putting in a Piercing Line candlestick pattern, 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.
